Just finished reading Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child, written by author and biographer extraordinaire Bob Spitz. Let me start with my – very few – gripes, then we’ll move on to the good stuff. I did say Ouf! when I was done, not because I didn’t love it....

I got my inspiration directly from Julia. The name is not presumptuous for this fabulous and ethereal dessert. It is almost flourless, but I make it completely so, and enjoy it on Passover too. Its short and dazzling ingredient list read like that of a giant chocolate truffle. Chocolate and...

Julia Child’s Bouillabaisse, the perennial favorite, wears several hats, all quite becoming. My version omits the verboten shellfish, and has very pleasing Moroccan overtones (this Moroccan can’t help it!) Some Seder guest recently created quite a stir at my (kosher) table when she declared after tasted this soup: “I can...
