I checked out the Kindle version of this book from my library (My Life in France by Julia Child and Alex Prud’Homme) and I am obsessed, I tell you.
It is a fascinating read that covers [in great detail] her time living in France, her passion for learning, attending Le Cordon Bleu, the lengthy journey to publication, and her love of people and food.
Basically, her entire adult life.
I am wholeheartedly vested at this point and really must pick up a copy of the cookbook that consumed so many years:
The screenplay is an adaptation of My Life in France (link above) and a memoir by Julie Powell, based on her blog that chronicled her attempt to cook all of the recipes in Julia Child’s cookbook in one year.
I simply must watch this now as well! Obsessed, I tell you.
