Julie Powell thought cooking her way through Julia Child's
Mastering the Art of French Cooking was the craziest
thing she'd ever do--until she embarked on the voyage
recounted in her new memoir, CLEAVING.
challenged by an insane, irresistible love affair, Julie
decides to leave town and immerse herself in a new
obsession: butchery. She finds her way to Fleischer's, a
butcher shop where she buries herself in the details of
food. She learns how to break down a side of beef and French
a rack of ribs--tough, physical work that only sometimes
distracts her from thoughts of afternoon trysts.
camaraderie at Fleischer's leads Julie to search out fellow
butchers around the world--from South America to Europe to
Africa. At the end of her
odyssey, she has learned a new art and perhaps even mastered
her unruly heart.
