Description

This delightful collection of interviews with 'The French Chef' Julia Child traces her life from her first stab at a writing career; to D.C., Sri Lanka, and Kunming where she worked for the Office of Strategic Services (now the CIA); to Paris where she and her husband Paul, then a member of the State Department, lived after World War II, and where Child attended the famous cooking school Le Cordon Bleu. From there, she catapulted to fame - first with the publication of Mastering the Art of French Cooking in 1961 and the launch of her home cooking show, 'The French Chef' in 1963.
