- DescriptionWhen Julia Child arrived in Paris in 1948, a 'six-foot-two-inch, thirty-six-year-old, rather loud and unserious Californian', she spoke barely a few words of French, and didn't know the first thing about cooking. This work follows her extraordinary transformation from kitchen ingenue to internationally renowned expert in French cuisine.
