I prefer Bittman's. His sensibilities about all things edible just seem right.

Trying to think-- did Julia Child have a recipe?

I'm partial to Elizabeth David's recipe from "A Book of Mediterranean Food." She was a stickler for authenticity and kept her recipes to the basics. Plus she was a terrific writer.
Marissa Despain

ps. Julia Child's recipe is similar to David's

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
