Judith Jones has been an editor for more than 50 years at Alfred A. Knopf, and as such has been responsible for bringing some of the century’s great works of literature before the American public. She has been particularly influential as an editor of food writing. In this field, her books include Julia Child’s landmark Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
In this talk from the 2011 Key West Literary Seminar, titled “The Language of Food,” Jones discusses changing attitudes toward food in America over the past 50 years, and the role of Julia Child and other writers in this transformation.
