From the Publisher:
Traces the life and career of the beloved "French Chef" from her youth as a California party girl and her clerical work in a World War II spy station to her marriage to Paul Child and her revolutionary choice to work as a television cooking instructor. Movie Tie-in. Reprint.Traces the life and career of the beloved "French Chef" from her youth as a California party girl and her clerical work in a World War II spy station to her marriage to Paul Child and her revolutionary choice to work as a television cooking instructor. Movie Tie-in. Reprint.The delicious life of one of the most beloved figures in twentiethcentury American culture-soon to be played by Meryl Streep in a major motion picture|| With a swooping voice, an irrepressible sense of humor, and a passion for good food, Julia Child ushered in the nation's culinary renaissance. In Julia Child, award-winning food writer Laura Shapiro tells the story of Child's unlikely career path, from California party girl to coolheaded chief clerk in a World War II spy station to bewildered amateur cook and finally to the Cordon Bleu in Paris, the school that inspired her calling. A food lover who was quintessentially American, right down to her little-known recipe for classic tuna fish casserole, Shapiro's Julia Child personifies her own most famous lesson: that learning how to cook means learning how to live.
Annotation:
As part of the Penguin Lives series, journalist Laura Shapiro presents a condensed, but compelling biography of the best-loved chef of the 20th century, Julia Child. In less than 200 pages, Shapiro manages to pack in all the most pertinent details of Child's fascinating life, from her childhood in California to her World War II service to her life-changing cooking classes at the Cordon Bleu. Amateur chefs will likely be delighted to discover that Child had more than her fair share of cooking disasters before she attained her gourmet status. But she learned from those experiences, and she loved to laugh about them, and that vibrant, candid spirit made her one of the most endearing television stars of all-time.
