Conceived of as an essential compendium of Julia’s wisdom and learning over the last forty years, Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom is published. “It began as my loose-leaf kitchen reference guide, gradually compiled from my own trials, remedies, and errors – corrected as I’ve cooked my way through the years,” she describes. Arranged according to type of ingredient with an emphasis on technique, the little volume is highly acclaimed. A two-hour special, Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom, airs on PBS.
