Publisher review:
Julia Child singlehandedly awakened America to the pleasures of good cooking with her cookbook Mastering the art of French cooking and her television 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. Indeed, when she first arrived in 1948 with her husband, Paul, 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. Julia's unforgettable story unfolds with the spirit so key to her success as as a cook and teacher and writer, brilliantly capturing one of the most endearing American personalities of the last fifty years.

About the author:
Julia Child was born in Pasadena, California. She was graduated from Smith College and worked for the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) during World War II in Ceylon and China, where she met Paul Child. After they married they lived in Paris, where she studied at the Cordon Bleu and he worked under various distinguished French chefs. In 1951, with Simone Beck and Louisette Bertholle, they started their own cooking school in Paris, L’Ecole des Trois Gourmandes, at the same time that the book Mastering the art of French cooking was taking shape. Shortly after the appearance of the book in 1961, Julia began appearing in the public television series The French Chef, which made her a national celebrity, earning her the Peabody Award in 1965 and an Emmy in 1966. Several public television programs and numerous cookbooks followed. Julia Child died in 2004. She is author or co-author of several books:
