Ever since I watched the movie Julie and Julia, I’ve been intrigued by the life of Julia Child. Until now, I’ve never actually read anything about her.
I just finished listening to The French Chef in America, as read by the author (and Julia’s grand-nephew), Alex Prud’Homme and learned quite a bit about the life of Julia Child. I found it a delightful listen and a well-written read!
This book starts after Julia Child published her first best seller cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. It provides glimpses into her cookbook writing, her friendships, her cooking shows, and my favorite part, her marriage to Paul.
While I don’t agree with all of Julia’s opinions and political philosophies, as a cook, I find her fascinating. I appreciated learning more about her love of food and cooking.
If you want to learn more about Julia Child or simply enjoy interesting biographies, I would recommend reading The French Chef in America. The audio book as read by Alex as an absolutely delightful way to read this book, too!
I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
