In the span of a single year, every one of of the 524 recipes in Julia Child's legendary Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Her unexpected rewards; not just a newfound respect for calves livers and aspic. but a new life-lived with gusto.

With the soon release of the movie I am giving away 5 copies of the book. All I ask is that you leave a comment and link to my post. For a second chance to win become a follower of my blog. The contest starts tomorrow and will last till
