From Lists of Note: "On October 31st of 1960, in a letter to her editor at Alfred A. Knopf publishers, the great Julia Child included a list — seen above — of 28 title suggestions for her forthcoming debut cookbook. The last of her suggestions was eventually chosen."

"'Mastering the Art of French Cooking' was published the next year, and went on to become one of the most influential cookbooks of all time."
