This is my most-asked question: What book should I give to an aspiring cook? I've never known quite what to answer. Now I do. Small Victories is so lively, so encouraging, and so filled with easy solutions that it's the perfect book for someone who loves food but is nervous in the kitchen. I'll be giving it to every young cook I know. (Not to mention a few experienced ones; it's filled with fantastic tips.)—Ruth Reichl


Small Victories by the wonderful Julia Turshen will make you fall deeply in love with her simple and achievable recipes, whilst teaching you the importance of mastering basic techniques that make us all better cooks!—April Bloomfield


Julia’s SMALL VICTORIES is a HUGE VICTORY! It is the best cookbook ever; a stunning visual memoir that you’ll soon have filled with post-its and turned-down pages. The Turkey Ricotta Meatballs recipe alone is reason enough to own this book.—Sally Field 


Julia Turshen always knows exactly what I want to eat. She has the kind of cook's intuition you can only gain though years of focus and passion. Her honest, inspired recipes have reinvigorated my cooking routine and made Small Victories an invaluable addition to my kitchen library.—Gail Simmons

Small Victories is precisely the kind of book that I can give to two kinds of people: to my non-cooking friends to let them know they can build their game, and to my professional chef friends to prove that there is always more to learn and that simple doesn’t mean dumbed-down. I could eat this book page after page and never tire of chewing.—Mario Batali
