Bon Appetit! The Delicious Life of Julia Child – Giveaway

Bursting with humorous, cartoon-style illustrations, Bon Appetit! The Delicious Life of Julia Child follows Julia from her meager culinary beginnings growing up in Pasadena (her mother only knew how to make three dishes: biscuits, codfish balls, and Welsh rabbit) to Sri Lanka, where she worked as an OSS clerk and tried exotic dishes like fish-head soup and tripe for the first time. Rouen, France is where a revelatory lunch inspired her to enroll at Le Cordon Bleu and learn to cook for the first time. What does Julia really like to do? asks Hartland in exuberant handwritten text. The answer: EAT!

Hartland’s exquisite drawings bring to life the inspiring story of Julia’s introduction to cooking in Paris and her rise to culinary renown, from the publication of her little-book-that-could, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, to her television debut on The French Chef in Boston. Along the way we learn some humorous anecdotes (that Julia wore a size 12 shoe, for example) and French vocabulary words, and we meet Julia’s dear friends and family members whose support made it all possible: husband Paul, editor Judith Jones, sister Dort, and co-authors Simone Beck (Simca) and Louisette Bertholle.

We were sent this adorable book and as a fan of Julia I have enjoyed reading it with my daughter. The book is so adorable with fun facts about the woman who inspired so many. We’re just thrilled about the book!

The book is now available online and at book stores!

 

Giveaway!
