Julia is . . . the grande dame of cooking, who has touched all of our lives with her immense respect and appreciation of cuisine. Emeril Lagasse, Emeril s Restaurant
Julia has slowly but surely altered our way of thinking about food. She has taken the fear out of the term haute cuisine. She has increased gastronomic awareness a thousandfold by stressing the importance of good foundation and technique, and she has elevated our consciousness to the refined pleasures of dining. Through the years her shows have kept me in rapt attention, and her humor has kept me in stitches. She is a national treasure, a culinary trendsetter, and a born educator beloved by all. Thomas Keller, The French Laundry
Julia freed the American public from their fears of cooking French. By doing so, she greatly expanded the audience for all serious food writers. Her demystification prepared that public for the rest of us. I believe that the television shows based on that landmark book did even more to encourage reluctant cooks to try their hands . . . much to our benefit. Mimi Sheraton
