'What's a shallot?' she asked her husband Paul, as they waited for their sole meuniere during their very first lunch in France, which she was to describe later as 'the most exciting meal of my life'. As she fell in love with French culture, buying food at local markets, sampling the local bistros and taking classes at the Cordon Bleu, her life began to change forever, and we follow her extraordinary transformation from kitchen ingenue to internationally renowned (and internationally loved) expert in French cuisine. Bursting with Child's adventurous and humorous spirit, "My Life in France" captures post-war Paris with wonderful vividness and charm.Hide synopsis

I love this woman. She is charming and funny and vastly practical. In sort, I wish she had been my friend.
In fact, this book is much like getting wonderful long letters from a good friend. I kept wanting to write her back to say what a treat it was to hear from her...but alas, she is gone. She lives on in these words, in this book. Read it. You will fall in love with her as I did.
