Paul de Vence, where I had my first really extraordinary, three-plus hour French lunch.

On that visit I also learned how to drive a stick-shift car in their field I ground the gears and put a dent in the bumper, but it was fun! Of course, one of my best memories of all is spending time with Julia at the end of her life: I feel very lucky.

When did you first learn that Julia was writing a book about her life? Julia liked the idea, though, and kept mental notes about it. She kept files of things she had written about her experiences there—her first meal in Rouen; how to shop for partridge in Paris, or fish in Marseille; the trials and tribulations of getting Mastering the Art of French Cooking written and published.

But she was self reliant, and for years had politely resisted my offer. She was 91, and growing frail, and I once again offered to assist her. Our collaboration grew from there. Talk about the process of writing this book with Julia.

Julia could only work for a couple of hours at a time. My tape recorder distracted her, so I took notes instead.

But after some fits and starts, we finally got into a good working rhythm. When I had enough material, I would write up a vignette. Julia would read it, correct it, and add new thoughts.

Added to that, she worked with Julia for forty years, and her deep understanding of our subject helped this book immeasurably. What are you currently working on? I came to this subject in part through Julia: It should be a lot of fun.

I think Julia would approve. She was 91 last summer, and could only talk for an hour or so at a time, but our conversations were always lively. She learned how to cook everything from snails to wild boar at the Cordon Bleu, said that marketing in France taught her the value of relationships, and felt that the best way to learn about a country is drive back roads, poke your nose into restaurant kitchens and "ask lots of questions.

Soon this tall, outspoken gal from Pasadena, California, who didn't speak a word of French and knew nothing about the country, was steeped in the language, chatting with purveyors in the local markets, and enrolled in the Cordon Bleu.
