Here is the captivating story of Julia Child's years in France, where she fell in love with French food and found her "true calling." From the moment the ship docked in Le Havre, en route to Paris, in the fall of 1948, Julia had an awakening that changed her life. Soon this tall, outspoken gal from Pasadena, California, who didn't speak a word of French and knew nothing about the country, was steeped in the language, chatting with purveyors in the local markets, and enrolled in the Cordon Bleu. This memoir is laced with wonderful stories about the French character, particularly in the world of food, and the way of life that Julia embraced so wholeheartedly. Here, she reveals the kind of spirit and determination, the sheer love of cooking, and the drive to share that with her fellow Americans that made her the extraordinary success she became.

Such great fun! I've been on a Julia Child kick lately, and what a joy to hear "her" voice describing that amazing time as she develops her passion for cooking and learns to share it with the world. I am left with a sense of great appreciation for process she underwent to hone her skills and develop her masterful recipes. A great read!
