Her latest book is
Cooking for Jeffrey
(Clarkson Potter).

Jeffrey and I had been married for two years when we went
camping in Normandy, France. The woman who owned the campsite offered us beef
bourguignonne, and I was like, Yessss!we had very little money, and Id been
using a small gas stove in the tent. Well, the meal was extraordinary. I had to figure
out how to re-create it, and I used Julia Childs Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
I taught myself to cook using cookbooks; now Im obsessed. But I had no place to keep
themthey were piled on the floor in stacks! So I built them a home.
