Alex Prud’homme, “The French Chef in America: Julia Child’s Second Act”

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. “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.
