Additional Details

Description: Here for the first time is a new Julia Child cookbook that's available for use in your kitchen at the same time that her new television series is being seen across the country. And it is the first to be illustrated in full color. 

Now you can duplicate at your leisure the recipes she demonstrates on the new program, Julia Child & Company. This book enables you to catch up on so many essential details that speed by too quickly in the half-hour show and gives you such invaluable tips about shopping and planning and timing that in no time you'll be cooking for company just the way Julia Child does it. 

In these pages, Mrs. Child has broken away from strictly French cooking. Her emphasis now is on the pleasures of the American table -- on the kinds of special occasions (see the list below) that everyone is likely to encounter. In her inimitable fashion, she offers exciting, delicious, and utterly foolproof recipes that will enlarge your repertoire of dishes both plain and fancy, vastly increase your pleasure in cooking, and enable you to rise splendidly to any occasion when company is coming.
