I am very happy to hear about the success of “Julie and Julia,” BUT, now Julia Child’s books on French cooking are flying off of the shelves.
I fear that people will make the recipes in the books and then, eat WAY MORE THAN JULIA ever expected people to eat.
Our portions are out of control. Why would we think that would change.
So, I say avoid the books or at the very least, get a better handle on how much French food you will eat.
