My life in France By Julia Child

My life in France By Julia Child

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 local markets, sampling the local bistros, and taking classes at the Cordon Bleu – her life began to change forever. We follow her extraordinary transformation from kitchen ingénue to internationally renowned (and internationally loved) expert in French cuisine.

My Thoughts:

After watching the film Julie and Julia, I have been fascinated with Julia Child and her life so being able to read this book was my idea of heaven. I got to know so much more about Julia and I loved the way there are photographs in the book. It was a fascinating and eye opening read, with some delicious sounding recipes that made my stomach growl. Reading this book you can see how affectionate and humbling Julia is. It was a wonderful and charming read and I am so glad I had the chance to read it. I now want to go and watch the film again even though I have watched it many many times.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
