My Life in France by Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme
Shortly after docking in Le Harve, Julia Child had the lunch that changed her life. It was sole meuniere, and Julia said "It was the most exciting meal of my life. " Julia and Paul Child lived in Paris and Marseilles from 1948 to 1954, and it was during that time Julia developed the love of French food and the skills that made her famous. Paul fell in love with Julia because she was always herself, and America fell in love with her for the same reason. Whether it was potatoes that didn't flip, or a tarte tatin that fell apart, Julia remained unfazed.
My Life in France tells the story of Julia Child's life: how she came to be an expert on French cuisine, revolutionize the writing of cookbooks and become the world's first celebrity chef.
Join us over the month of January as we celebrate this remarkable woman and remember: Bon Appetit!
