“Morstad’s lively art uses Photoshop, ink and gouache, telegraphing a suggestion of the ink-and-watercolor work of mid-20th-century artists like Sasek and Bemelmans … there’s a dollop of sentimentality in the way that the two young cooks bring ‘all sorts of big, busy people’ to a remembrance of childhood pleasures…. Intriguing for an adult familiar with the real Julia and perhaps for the perceptive child who will understand that it’s not about how old you are, or about what you cook, but about what you bring to the table.” – Kirkus Reviews
The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards were founded in 1995 by Edouard Cointreau and celebrates global cookbook and wine book publishing and feature many world renowned chefs each year.
