ITEM#: 10710247Julia Child singlehandedly created a new approach to American cuisine with her cookbookMastering the Art of French Cooking and her television show The French Chef, but as she reveals in this bestselling memoir, she was not always a master chef. Indeed, when she first arrived in France in 1948 with her husband, Paul, who was to work for the USIS, she spoke no French and knew nothing about the country itself. But as she dove into French culture, buying food at local markets and taking classes at the Cordon Bleu, her life changed forever with her newfound passion for cooking and teaching. Julia’s unforgettable story – struggles with the head of the Cordon Bleu, rejections from publishers to whom she sent her now-famous cookbook, a wonderful, nearly fifty-year long marriage that took them across the globe – unfolds with the spirit so key to her success as a chef and a writer, brilliantly capturing one of the most endearing American personalities of the last fifty years.

I was never into watching Julia Child's cooking show. When I saw the movie Julie & Julia, It made me want to learn more about her and wish I'd watched her on tv. Our PBS station ran a special on her which I loved, but reading this book has been the best insight into the life of Julia Child. What a delightful person she was - so full of the joy of life! She writes in such a way that you feel you're there with her and experiencing all the wonderful sights, sounds and smells of France! This is a great read and Overstock delivered faster than I expected to receive this book!Read More
