  • The joy that was our Julia

    Julia. Had Julia Child dominated only 20th century cookbook publishing, which she surely did after producing the bibles of dinner party cookery between 1961 and 1970 ("Mastering the Art of French Cooking" Volumes One and Two), we might have known her...
  • The age of indulgence gets its own Gourmet
