How did Julia Child become one of America's most celebrated and beloved chefs? Her grandnephew reveals her story in this picture book that Jacques Pepin calls a "vivid portrait . . . an enjoyable read." Julia's kid-friendly recipe for Oeufs Brouillés (Scrambled Eggs) is included!


Julia Child was born hungry, but she was not born a chef. In fact, Julia didn’t discover her passion for cooking until she had a life-changing luncheon in France and became determined to share her newfound love of food with everyone.
 
In Paris, Julia devoured recipe books, shopped in outdoor markets, consumed all kinds of foods, and whipped through culinary school. And although she wasn't always successful in the kitchen, she was determined to "master the art" of French cooking. Through perseverance and grit, Julia became a chef who shared her passion with the world, making cooking fun, and turning every meal into a special event.
 
Alex Prud'homme's firsthand knowledge paired with Sarah Green's vibrant and energetic illustrations showcases Julia's life and celebrates her enduring legacy.

Alex Prud'homme is Julia Child's great-nephew and the coauthor of her autobiography, My Life in France. Prud'homme's articles have appeared in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Time, and People.

Sarah Green is a RISD educated illustrator and designer born in San Francisco and currenlty based in British Columbia. She is the illustrator of numerous picture books, including Fight of the Century by Barb Rosenstock, Dorothea Lange by Carole Boston Weatherford, and Elizabeth Warren by Susan Wood.
