"Whatever the objectives of the television series may have been, the book, written by Dorie Greenspan in a literate, patient but exuberant style, is more than strong enough to stand on its own. It's the product of a tremendous collaborative effort, yet it achieves a clear authorial tone. To my ear, it sounds as if Ms. Greenspan has spent so much time with Julia Child that she's assimilated her accent and eloquence, although it may be be own natural voice....The 200 recipes are organized as a course in baking, with an early, energetic section on the basic batters and doughs or cakes and pastries. The book moves on to recipes of varying degrees of complexity. In the bread section, you start off easy, with simple compositions, like white bread or a buttermilk loaf for your bread machine, and then it's on to more painstaking creations that might include tricky wild yeast and meticulous braiding.But the book's success is due to more than organization: the text never misses a chance to explain, expand and entertain. The reader is told, for instance, that the molded cookies called "tuiles" are a reference to French roof tiles; chiffon cake was named for the airy costumes of the flappers in the 1920's. And the tutorials that accompany recipes are models of clarity..." -- "New York Times, " Dec. 8, 1996, Richard Flaste

Baking with JuliaReviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 November 2013
Have bought this for my daughter who lives abroad. She wanted it. What I can see it is a very well written recipe book and with very good photographs which illustrate all recipes. Worth the money!

Not Julias recipesReviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 January 2013
Bought thinking it was a book by Julia Child including her own recipes...it was not...just a TV spin-off with her as a figure head.

One of my favourite baking booksReviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 February 2013
I do love it, but I'm in no way a natural cook, and I often create disasters in the kitchen. Julia's recipes however never fail me, as they are well tested, accurate and easy to follow. There are many great recipes in this book, but the brownie and brioche recipes are truly wonderful.
