Avis de journaliste - Bookreporter.com - Terry Miller Shannon

In her memoir, we discover that Julia Child was not born with a wooden spoon in her hand; her early cooking experiences were sometimes less than delectable. Her adventures, culinary and otherwise, are chronicled in amazing detail and much charm, written with Alex Prud'homme, Paul Child's grandnephew.

Such a joy. Child has a writing style that reads easily: full of vivid detail, unique humor, and mouth-watering descriptions of French food. And it has pictures! I feel this is a book a will treasure forever and return to again and again, especially when I'm hungry! Consulter l'avis complet

I enjoyed this book and learned a lot about icon Julia Child. What a fascinating story of how she got started in cooking, and her love of all things French. I'm writing a cookbook myself so it was helpful to hear from the master! Consulter l'avis complet

It will be a surprise to those who know me that I bothered to read a book having to do with cooking. The story, however, gave me an appreciation of the art and science of preparing food well, the ... Consulter l'avis complet

I loved this book and totally recommend it! I loved the movie Julie & Julia and this books covers Julia and Paul Child's life from 1948 until Paul's death in the 1990s. Julia writes as enthusiastically as I picture her talking. I enjoyed getting a glimpse of France in the 50's. Consulter l'avis complet
