If you’ve read my About page, you know that my mother is a huge fan of Julia Child. As a young wife, she taught herself to cook with her book Mastering the Art of French Cooking and by watching her series The French Chef. I had no idea that she had her cookbooks autographed by Julia and Paul Child. We were sitting around talking about the new movie, Julie & Julia, the other weekend, and she told us a really cool story. Apparently Julia Child was autographing her newest cookbook release back in 1971, and Mom had brought her well-loved cookbooks with her as well. Julia’s husband, Paul, was so impressed at how well-used they were that he pointed them out to Julia. The result is that Mom has all three of her Julia Child cookbooks autographed by Julia and Paul Child. How cool is that?

This is awesome, Jill. My daughter and I loved the movie. I’ve thoroughly looked over your foodie site and I am impressed and drooling!
By the way, my favorite restaurant is Nuevo Acapulco in North Olmsted. I could eat Mexican food every day.
Well, we will just have to meet there for drinks and dinner sometime soon, Michelle. It will be great to catch up.
