And the secret ingredient is...

... well, I can't tell you. Actually, there's a lot I can't tell you. But I CAN venture, I think, to confess that... I was on Iron Chef America!!! Well, I taped the show - it's being aired in late February sometime.

You will be relieved to hear that I was not cooking, but judging. And it was great fun. I totally blew my 36-hour-old diet, and got to meet a great grand eminence of the food writing world, who was churlish and wonderful, and I loved it. Bobby Flay was the Iron Chef. And, well, shit, that's about all I can say, or the Food Network will have my first child for tapas.

Will let you know when I know when it's going to air....

Hi Julie,

I'm reading your book and I'm loving it. You crack me up and that's about what I need these days.
I'm about to open a French/Belgian
Pastry shop and cafe in Park Slope and my wife and I are expecting our first child in like a month.
Pretty intense period and your book is my daily relief.
Thanks a lot.
I hope you can come by my pastry shop when it opens.

YAY! I will definitely keep an eye out for this! (Were you on with snarky judges? Read: Jeffrey Steingarten) We watch way too much Iron Chef America 'round here, but we just can't stay away.

onetiredema beat me to it... i was going to guess that the churlish grand eminence was jeffrey steingarten. i subscribe to vogue for the express purpose of reading his food writing.

Even though I'm not a big fan of IC America (who IS that dickwad replacing Dr Hattori?) I'll find a copy of this come hell or high water.

In case you don't know, some IC fans refer to the female actress/newspresenter/singer judge (there was always one) as the "BDJ" or Bimbo De Jour. So...umm...

I just discovered your new blog--just wanted to say that I enjoyed your book very much.

I'm so jealous you got to judge on Iron Chef America. Iron Chef has been my favorite show for years--long before the Alton Brown version.

Anyway, good luck w/ everything!

Just wanted to say how much I am enjoying your book. I'm probably behind the curve but I just started reading it. Keep writing!
I do hope I don't sound like a book groupie.

Being a slow child, and an even slower adult, I didn't catch on to the Julie/Julia phenomenon until the last couple of months. Even read most of the original blog in pretty much one sitting. Which annoyed the husband 'cause he had to do everything else. What can I say, he chose to marry me.

So, you're pretty fabulous and these days I try to cook one random recipe from a book I own (which is hard work when the book's The Complete Works of Shakespeare) once a week. Unless, of course, random chance happens on something I don't like, in which case I order out. Either way, the plan's a good one.

Enjoy your success.

Julie please tell us more about Jeffrey. I can't stand how they edit him so on Iron Chef. He is a genius!
