At seven o'clock on a dreary evening in the Left Bank, Julia began roasting pigeons for the second time in her life. On the side counters stood the cheese--boxes of Camembert, large hunks of Cantal, and wheels of Brie in various stages of ripeness--some brand-new and almost hard, others soft to the point of oozing. Prevention, of course, is the best medicine, so keep recipe books, dishtowels, and the like away from flames. If you whisk 2 eggs into 1 cup dairy, you'd have what the French call a royale. Ride hard, eat hardy, be thankful.

See which books I picked. )
