Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking

    I have a cookbook question . . .

    Does anyone know if there is a difference between the 1961 edition, and the 1965 edition of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, by Julia Child?

    Yes, there were some revisions in the newer edition. I saw a documentary on Julia Child and I remember them mentioning that. I vaguely recall it being something about simplifying some recipes but I won't swear to that.

      OK, thanks. My local library only has the very new 40th anniversary edition -- way too expensive. But I'm looking for the original1961, or the 1965, to check it out and buy used.

        I have the 1961 edition (4th printing 1963) if you want me to post a recipe for comparison.
