Here is the captivating story of Julia Child's years in France, where she fell in love with French food and found "her true calling." From the moment she and her husband Paul, who worked for the USIS, arrived in the fall of 1948, Julia had an awakening that changed her life. Soon this tall, outspoken gal from Pasadena, California, who didn't speak a word of French and knew nothing about the country, was steeped in the language, chatting with purveyors in the local markets, and enrolled in the Cordon Bleu. She teamed up with two fellow gourmettes, Simone Beck and Louisette Bertholle, to help them with a book on French cooking for Americans. Filled with her husband's beautiful black-and-white photographs as well as family snapshots, this memoir is laced with wonderful stories about the French character, particularly in the world of food, and the way of life that Julia embraced so wholeheartedly. Bon appétit!--From publisher description.… (mais)

Julia Child was not always a master chef. Indeed, when she first arrived in France in 1948 with her husband, Paul, who was to work for the USIS, she spoke no French and knew nothing about the country itself. But as she dove into French culture, buying food at local markets and taking classes at the Cordon Bleu, her life changed forever with her newfound passion for cooking and teaching. Julia's unforgettable story--struggles with the head of the Cordon Bleu, rejections from publishers to whom she sent her now-famous cookbook, a wonderful, nearly fifty-year long marriage that took the Childs across the globe--unfolds with the spirit so key to Julia's success as a chef and a writer, brilliantly capturing one of America's most endearing personalities.

An engaging account of Julia's "Life in France" where she studied cooking, taught classes, shopped the food markets and began work on her cookbook.

My Life in France by Julia Child (2006)

Child's memoir started out well enough. In fact, I was quite enthralled through at least the first third of the book. She has this remarkable enthusiasm and drive and good humor that I fell in love with everything she did. I wanted to be her best friend. I had fun realizing I remember more French than I thought I did, and I gained a newfound interest in Paris. I might never have gotten around to reading this book had I not agreed to lead the library's book group this October--not because I am disinterested in Child, but apart from only a couple dining experiences and vague memories of seeing her show on TV as a child, I never had much of an interest in French cuisine. And with the beginning of the book, I was off to a roaring start!
However, as it progressed, I began to lose my motivation for the book. Had I not been assigned to the book club, I would have put it down to pick up at a later time. It wasn't because it turned bad; it's just nothing happened that was a surprise. I didn't know much about Child before reading this, but I knew the basics--lived in France, began cooking, got published, got a show. And that's pretty much it. There wasn't really any suspense. She also seemed to get a little snippy as time went on, which sort of rubbed me to wrong way. Reading about food was fun at first, but that got a little boring after awhile. I thought I would get more motivation to start cooking more often myself, and I liked her message of "anyone can cook--one just needs the desire and willingness to put in the time." I agree, but I began to develop an inferiority complex about my ability to cook as I work 52-60 hours a week and find it hard to imagine how I could fit the time required to make a fabulous dish (for a single girl, to boot) among all of my additional responsibilities.
C'est la vie. So overall, I'm glad I read it--I feel much more informed on French life, the cooking process, the world of written and televised media, and of course the force of nature that was Julia Child, but I'm ready for a more rollicking adventure. ( )

For me, reading Julia Child’s memoir felt like going home.
 
"My Life in France," written with Alex Prud'homme, is Child's exuberant, affectionate and boundlessly charming account of that transformation. It chronicles, in mouth-watering detail, the meals and the food markets that sparked her interest in French cooking, and her growing appreciation of all things French."

This is a book about some of the things I have loved most in life; my husband, Paul Child; la belle France; and the many pleasures of cooking and eating.

Usually one's cooking is better than one thinks it is. And if the food is truly vile, as my ersatz eggs Florentine surely were, then the cook must simply grit her teeth and bear it with a smile - and learn from her mistakes.
