The French Chef in America

Julia Child's Second Act
Written by Alex Prud'homme | Narrated by Alex Prud'homme
This “delicious” biography (Booklist) serves up heartwarming memories of a culinary icon whose name is synonymous with French cuisine — from her beloved television programs to her legendary collaborations with other famed chefs. “In-depth and intimate,” with “peppy narration and flawless French pronunciations” (AudioFile) written and narrated by Child’s own grandnephew.

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

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.
