“I have always thought it was insane to expect a great big enormous turkey to take all those long extra hours. At some point there is a point of no return, if you know what I mean which I do not myself, but there must be some law that covers it. It has been my experience that all given cooking times for turkey are too long—the best is always done before you plan it.”

January 17, 1958 letter to Julia Child in As Always, Julia: The Letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto (New York: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2010), 309.
