Bon Apetit

I just finished reading Julia Child's autobiography, My Life in France. This is a charming book which chronicles her marriage to Paul, how her thoughts about food exploded in Paris and of course how she became involved in her first cookbook - Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

Written with her nephew, the book is very much in her voice. I could almost hear her telling me the stories as I read it. Paul was a talented photographer and his photos illustrate the book. (His work is owned by the MOMA.) This book complements well Apetite for Life, the biography by Fitch, which chronicles her whole life including her work in WW II intellegence.
