A charming, giftable collection of the beloved, best-selling author's inimitable quotes--her words of wisdom on love, life, and, of course, food.

About the Author

JULIA CHILD was born in Pasadena, California. She graduated from Smith College and worked for the OSS during World War II; afterward she lived in Paris, studied at the Cordon Bleu, and taught cooking with Simone Beck and Louisette Bertholle, with whom she wrote the first volume of Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961). In 1963, Boston's WGBH launched The French Chef television series, which made Julia Child a national celebrity, earning her the Peabody Award in 1964 and an Emmy in 1966. Several public television shows and numerous cookbooks followed. She died in 2004.

This one's for the food-lovers (and Julia Child fans) in your life. (But let's be honest--isn't that everyone?) This nicely bound book is a collection of Child's best quotes, including some of her best lines about eating and food . . . This is a compact, meaningful gift that they'll love tucking next to their cookbook collection.
--Lauren Phillips, RealSimple.com A delightful treat sure to be gobbled up by foodies on your gift list.
--The Wall Street Journal The legendary culinary authority taught us not only how to cook with her books and PBS shows, but also life lessons through her keen perceptions, wit, and the power of her punchy words . . . Inspiring and entertaining, the volume provides a much-needed lift these days as we prepare for the holidays. --The Boston Globe [This book] collects [Julia Child's] lifetime of wisdom in pithy and humorous quotes you'll enjoy reading again and again . . . it fits the bill as a great gifting idea for both the aspiring and seasoned cooks in your life.

[People Who Love to Eat Are Always the Best People] should make the cooking aficionados on your list gleeful. A great stocking stuffer, it will make a delightful treasure trove of all things culinary for cooking buffs of any age . . . [Julia Child] is known for having said, "Eating is one of the French National Sports." Many of the sayings included here offer what could be the start of many an essay . . . It would be fun for me to go on and on with these witticisms, but then you wouldn't buy the book, and you should. --Mims Cushing, The Florida Times-Union
