When Julia Child arrived in Paris in 1948, ‘a six-foot-two-inch, thirty-six-year-old, rather loud and unserious Californian’, she barely spoke a word of French and didn’t know the first thing about cooking.
As she fell in love with French culture – buying food at markets, sampling the local bistros and taking classes at the Cordon Bleu – her life began to change. We follow her transformation from kitchen ingénue to internationally renowned (and loved) expert in French cuisine. Bursting with Child’s adventurous and humorous spirit, My Life in France captures this era of Paris with wonderful charm.
