The stunning story of how Julia Child transformed herself into the cult figure who touched off a food revolution that has gripped the country for more than fifty years. Spanning Pasadena to Paris, acclaimed author Bob Spitz reveals the history behind the woman who taught America how to cook.
A genuine rebel who took the pretensions that embellished French cuisine and fricasseed them to a fare-thee-well, paving the way for a new era of American food--not to mention blazing a new trail in television--Child redefined herself in middle age, fought for women's rights, and forever altered how we think about what we eat.
Chronicling Julia's struggles, her heartwarming romance with Paul, and, of course, the publication of "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" and her triumphant TV career, "Dearie" is an extraordinarily entertaining account of a truly remarkable life.
