The French Chef in America: Julia Child’s Second Act

2016 Knopf

by

The enchanting story of Julia Child's years as TV personality and beloved cookbook author--a sequel in spirit to "My Life in France"--by her great-nephew.  

Julia Child is synonymous with French cooking, but her legacy runs much deeper. Now, her great-nephew and "My Life in France" coauthor vividly recounts the myriad ways in which she profoundly shaped how we eat today. He shows us Child in the aftermath of the publication of "Mastering the Art of French Cooking, " suddenly finding herself America's first lady of French food and under considerable pressure to embrace her new mantle. We see her dealing with difficult colleagues and the challenges of fame, ultimately using her newfound celebrity to create what would become a totally new type of food television. Every bit as entertaining, inspiring, and delectable as "My Life in France, " "The French Chef in America" uncovers Julia Child beyond her "French chef" persona and reveals her second act to have been as groundbreaking and adventurous as her first.
