Notes about this book

    For someone like me who grew up in England and so didn't know much about Julia Child before moving to the US, this book was an eye-opener as to how influential she was in transforming the American kitchen.

2007 IACP Award Winner!

Now in paper. This delightful memoir of Julia's years in
Paris, Marseilles, and Provence opens with Paul and Julia--a tall, wide-eyed girl from Pasadena who can't cook and doesn't speak a word of French--disembarking in Le Havre, and ends with the launching of the two Mastering cookbooks and Julia wining the heart of American as The French Chef.

Begun several months before she died, My Life in France was completed by Paul's grandnephew Alex Prud'homme, based on hours of talks with Julia and on family letters. Funny, earthy, forthright--Julia is with us on every page as she relishes the French way of life that transformed her, and us.
