From the legendary editor who helped shape modern cookbook publishing-one of the food world's most admired figures-comes this evocative and inspiring memoir. Living in Paris after World War II, Jones broke free of bland American food and reveled in everyday French culinary delights. On returning to the States she published Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking . The rest is publishing and gastronomic history. A new world now opened up to Jones as she discovered, with her husband Evan, the delights of American food, publishing some of the premier culinary luminaries of the twentieth century: from Julia Child, James Beard, and M.F.K. Fisher to Claudia Roden, Edna Lewis, and Lidia Bastianich. Here also are fifty of Jones's favorite recipes collected over a lifetime of cooking-each with its own story and special tips. The Tenth Muse is an absolutely charming memoir by a woman who was present at the creation of the American food revolution and played a pivotal role in shaping it. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Enjoyable memoir by Judith Jones - an editor at Knopf, the famed publisher of Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Definitely Ms. Jones has mastered the art of living. I loved the first section dealing with the early years of her career in Paris. Wonderful. Now, I must go and throw out all those boxes of Kraft Dinner in my cupboard...
