Praise

“A delicious recounting of the life of the woman who has inspired confidence in generations of American cooks.”
Town & Country
 
“Marvelous. . . . Mesmerizing.”
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
 
“Fitch’s richly detailed biography of Child describes how a plainspoken woman who loved food inspired millions to pick up a whisk and make a fine French dinner from scratch.”
Newsweek
 
“A deep dish on the food world.”
House Beautiful

“An incredible adventure.”
The Boston Globe
 
“Because Child allowed Fitch complete access to her papers, we get a real feel for the relentless work that went into the much-massaged Mastering.”
The Washington Post
 
“Entertaining and informative—represents the best of biographical writing.”
Library Journal
 
“I thoroughly enjoyed reading Appetite for Life. . . . Our admiration and love for Julia grows stronger as we keep reading. . . . The narration reads like a thriller, vivid and engrossing. . . . This well-written, lively tale brings to life a complex, multifaceted personality, endearing, and, at times, heroic.”
—Jacques Pepin
