Suzi, you HAVE to read Noel Riley Fitch's book about Julia called Appetite for Life. Fabulous book. Pardon the pun, but I "ate" the book and was sad when I got to the last page. At least I can read it again because Buck gave me a copy when the book came out.

Lots of great information about Julia, her family, her "jobs" and her great love, Paul Child.

And, yes, expat...I'll raise a glass to her, too. Julia Child...one of our finest national treasures!!!!

Everything that I have on her, I'm keeping it and I'm not getting rid of it!

Maybe someone could record it and send you a dvd? I don't have a recorder, or I'd volunteer.

It was a wonderful show.

Katie, have you read "My Life in France" yet? I swear I could hear Julia talking while I was reading it. and Nancy Verde Barr wrote a wonderful book on her years of working with Julia called "Backstage With Julia." You'd like that, too! not to mention Laura Shapiro's biography, which all of us who know Julia like much better than the Fitch book.......

Yes, I also have My Life in France and you're right, reading it was almost like having Julia sitting next to me. Wonderful book.

I'll have to see if the library has Backstage with Julia and Laura Shapiro's book. I love reading about Julia. She was a phenomenal person.

For those who might have missed Julia last night, she'll probably be back on over the weekend.

The Food Network is running a Chefography Marathon on Saturday.

I read that the FN was going to feature Robert Irwine has one of the celebrity chefs in this season's Chefography, but they then decided not to.

He was pulled from the documentary - I imagine because of the latest controversy surrounding his supposed credentials.
