This is one of the most delightful and engaging autobiographies I've ever read and one of my favorite books, about one of the forerunners of American cuisine. Julia Child was the woman who brought French cooking to America, and this book is a collection of fascinating stories from her years in France. It beautifully describes her experiences in a post-war France, from the life and culture of Paris, to Le Cordon Bleu, to, of course, the wonderful cuisine (reading it can make you hungry). Definitely, definitely check it out. Bon Appetite!
