Read in January, 2007

What a beautiful story of a life well lived. I realy knew nothing of Julia Child except that she had a cooking show in Channel 8 (that my daughter used to watch with her grandmother while she drank her bottle) and the SNL satire of her.

This book tells the story of a woman who embraces life. All of it. How she came to travel the world, love food, her marriage to an unlikely match, their devotion to each other and her eventual success as a innovative cook that changed how the world viewed French cuisine. It is so well written that you cannot put it down.

Read this, not "Julie & Julia" (boring!)
