Published: Thames & Hudson - October 24th, 2017

In 1948 Julia Child and her husband moved to France where they had a great time discovering the French way of life and its cuisine. The book is filled with wonderful photographs taken by Julia's husband Paul, many of which haven't been seen before. The personal stories written by Julia's great-nephew are treasures. This is a delightful look at the influences on a great chef and a portrait of another era. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Knight
