Take a page out of Julie Powell’s book and throw your own Julia Child–inspired dinner party, with recipes straight out of Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

This includes Mastering the Art of French Cooking, My Life in France, Julia and Jacques Cooking at Home, The Way to Cook, and Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom. Williams-Sonoma is even throwing in a Le Creuset French oven, like the featured in Julie & Julia, and Bon Appétit will supply a one-year gift subscription and autographed copies of the 50th Anniversary Bon Appetit Cookbook and The Bon Appétit Fast Easy Fresh Cookbook. In short: these prizes will transform your kitchen into a culinary paradise.
The Be Like Julie: Cook From Julia contest begins July 14, 2009, and final submissions are due by 11:59 pm (Eastern Daylight Time) on August 15, 2009.
