That explains it then. Guess I need to re-read "My Life in France". Has anyone else had Julia's voice in their head since this thread started?!? It makes me giggle.

Total non-sequiter here (well maybe not total). Is anyone out there a fan of MFK Fisher's? She is one of my food heroes and a favorite author. I mention her because she too (like Julia) was heavily influenced by France and she was a strong, opinionated woman. If you love food/travel literature, she is a must read. I have a salad recipe in my collection that was dictated by her to a person (not me) standing in my kitchen and holding my phone. Long story but if anyone wants to hear it let me know! I tell you, it was a thrill when it happened. It was probably 20 years ago - but I remember it well. We made and ate the salad and toasted MFK. What a memorable day!
