As Always, Julia edited by Joan Reardon

You may have enough cookery books, but do you have enough cookery biographies? They are often JUST as exciting I think, and this compilation of letters between Julia Child (US cooking guru) and Avis Devoto, her literary mentor, during the writing and eventual publication of the Julia’s masterpiece Mastering The Art Of French Cooking makes for lively reading.

The joy of this book too, is that it is presented in letter format so if like me, you read before bed and regularly drop off to sleep half way into a chapter, you’ll find you will perfectly manage one or two letters before dropping off. Available from Amazon
