We Definitely Love Julia

Posted August 05, 2009

The whole food universe has gone a little mad for Julia Child with the Friday release of Julie & Julia, and we're no exception. In our August issue, as one of 10 whimsical ideas for summer gatherings (from a bikini party to a We Love Julia party), we're running the recipe for an amazing bacon-and-leek quiche, inspired by one of Julia's favorite foods. Today on our website we're featuring some of our favorite recipes from French Masters, and a few of our best Julia-worthy French desserts (like François Payard's Triple-Decker Macaroon Cake). Tomorrow, on Etsy.com, F&W Editor in Chief Dana Cowin will share Julia-inspired style finds (here's a preview). I think this should all tide me over until Friday, when I can watch Meryl Streep embody the greatest TV chef of all time, the queen of all Francophile foodies, and my own epicurean raison d'être. That's the hope, in any case. If not, I can always read the pages-long recipe for French bread in Mastering the Art of French Cooking Volume 2.
