A respected, well-liked food writer and seasoned recipe developer, she's had a long, wonderful relationship with food her whole life, and this cookbook displays her love, strategic thinking and enjoyment of food and cooking for you to enjoy as well – the recipes as special and warmly authoritative as Julia herself.

Praise for Small Victories
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. Ruth Reichl

I’ve been waiting for this book! I love Julia’s cooking and had a few lessons from her. She knows how to make things that are easy, delicious, and chic!  Sofia Coppola

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. Mario Batali

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.  Sally Field 
Industry Reviews
"Small Victories is a chatty primer for the hesitant or unconfident cook but gives as much pleasure to those with years of kitchen experience. Rich in ideas, and far from basic in its span of recipes, this is a book that earns a place on any shelf."-Nigella Lawson
"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."-Mario Batali
"This is Ms. Turshen's first cookbook as a solo author, but she has co-written others with the likes of Mario Batali, Gwyneth Paltrow and Dana Cowin. She's also a recipe tester and developer-a skill that shines through in a book aimed at aspiring, eager home cooks; you won't find any molecular gastronomy in these pages.
Ms. Turshen is a self-deprecating, warm and charming writer."-- Wall Street Journal
" An inspiring addition to any kitchen bookshelf" Real Simple
"Electric with positive energy"-- The New York Times Best Cookbooks of Fall 2016
"The title of this book comes from the idea that learning to cook is a series of small victories: tiny lessons that, in sum, form a culinary education. These include concepts like putting a damp towel under a cutting board to keep it from moving while you chop, or freezing pesto in ice cube trays for easier use. Who couldn't use to learn a new trick or two?" Epicurious
"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 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
