“Always start out with a larger pot
than what you think you need.”
― Julia Child
Even as a child, I remember thumbing through the pages of my parents' cookbooks, discovering new dishes and finding foreign ingredients. Back then, cookbooks seldom looked the way they do now. No glossy full-page photographs or food stylists or assumption that the reader was a foodie--just the words of the chef, perhaps a drawing or two and the trusted recipe.
