    That Was Then, This Is Now
    If you are lucky, this is the way cancer treatment ends, not with a bang but a whimper. Let's see, of the treatments listed for me in November: chemo--it's done; surgery--done; radiation--done. It remained only to go see my oncologist, Dr. James Waisman,...
  • The age of indulgence gets its own Gourmet

    When the magazine of good living produced the first Gourmet cookbook in 1950, the world was a very different place. Europe was war-ravaged, while America was rich, innocent and giddy — the perfect setting for a new Europe, but with better plumbing...
  • Nouveau Napa

    There's Napa, the valley. And then there's Napa, the city. Napa, the valley, is the realm of chef Thomas Keller's French Laundry in Yountville and Francis Ford Coppola's Niebaum-Coppola winery in Rutherford, of the luxe Meadowood resort in St. Helena and...

  • A Day in the Life, at 90

    We knock on the door of Julia Child's condominium half an hour early. She appears after a minute. "Hello, dearie," she says and apologizes for being busy. She points us toward the living room. "Here's the paper. I'll be out when I'm done with these...
  • Bright Beginning -- the cherry season's upon us

    Life is, as they say, a bowl of cherries. That's the optimist's view, of course, the idea being that there's nothing better, nothing more appealing, nothing, well, happier than a generous -- and in the most optimistic view, bottomless -- bowl of big,...
  • The Grand Dame of American Cookery Lends Her Name to a Napa Restaurant

    The to-do list goes something like this: Scale way back on all earthly possessions, ridding yourself of books, pots and pans. Move to a much smaller place 3,000 miles away. And slap your name on a restaurant. It's a pretty ambitious schedule if, say, you'...
  • Diary of a chef wannabe

    Julie Powell was in a rut. Teetering on the brink of 30, living in a tiny apartment in a distinctly unglamorous outer borough of Manhattan, working at a government secretarial job she invariably describes as "soul-sucking," she figured what her life...
  • A Little Tart, A Lot of Character

    A perfectly ripe plum of the perfect variety, harvested on the perfect summer day, shipped and stored in the perfect way and delivered to you when you are in the perfect frame of mind to enjoy it--this is a rare pleasure indeed. When you hit upon this...
  • Celebration: A benefit is the appetizer in a series of food-laden fetes before Julia Child's big day.

    SAN FRANCISCO -- It's not every day that an American icon turns 90, and, strictly speaking, she hasn't. But when the icon is Julia Child, can there really be a wrong time for a celebratory "bon appetit"? "Well, I think it's all pretty nice, don't you?...
