Product Description

Julia Child singlehandedly awakened America to the pleasures of good cooking with her memorable, classic cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and her TV show The French Chef. But, as she reveals in this bestselling memoir, she didn't know the first thing about cooking when she landed in France. Speaking no French and knowing nothing of the country, Child dove into the culture, buying food at local markets and taking classes at the Cordon Bleu, changing her life forever. Here, her unforgettable story unfolds with the spirit so key to her success as a cook and teacher and writer. A great read. Index. B&W illus. 352p.

    With a new cover celebrating the 2009 movie “Julie & Julia”, this book revisits Julia’s time spent in France, a country that came to be as dear to her as the United States. There, she discovered the French people, language, countryside and a love of tasty dishes, fine dining and exquisite cooking that was never to leave her and that she was determined to make known to Americans back home. Julia’s irrepressible spirit and intelligence shine through this book and make it a must-read for any Francophile or modern cook who also loves good food.
