Book Summary

Julia Child was a genuine rebel: She took the pretensions that embellished French cuisine and fricasseed them to a fare-thee-well, paving the way for a new era of American food — not to mention blazing a new trail in television. Bob Spitz reveals the history behind the woman who taught America how to cook.
