The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

My Life in France by Julia Child - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book My Life in France:

Julia's tales of cooking it up in France - with a lot of butter.

My favorite Julia Child quote from the book:

"We are so bemused by our own petard that we are unable to look at things objectively."

Questions to ponder while reading My Life in France:

Does Julia Child make you feel lazy?

Did you have any idea that mayonnaise was so complex?

My review of My Life in France:

I love food!

I love Julia's passion!

I love butter!
