My Life in France.
by [Culinary History] Child, Julia with Alex Prud'homme.

Publisher Information:
Knopf, New York: 2006.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. This memoir by Julia Child of her life in France was the source book for the movie Julie & Julia that depicts her introduction to French food and where she found her culinary calling. Her story begins in 1948 when Julia first landed in Le Havre, France and follows her personal awakening that changed her life. She enrolled in the Cordon Bleu, received her degree and began teaching cooking classes with Simone Beck and Louisette Bertholle. This trio of gastronomics would eventually team up to write the first volume of what would become "Mastering the Art of French Cooking". This book documents Julia Child's transformation from the one-time government worker to one of the world's most famous chefs.
