The Associated Press reports that Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will publish the letters of Julia Child in December. "As Always, Julia" features more than 200 letters written by the chef and her agent Avis DeVoto. They run from 1952 through 1966, the span of time during which Child penned "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" and became host of the "The French Chef." If you've seen "Julie & Julia," you know Child and DeVoto were also dear friends. Their letters are sure to make interesting reading, offering new insight into the lives and characters of both women.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
