Julia Child's mentor and coauthor of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Simone "Simca" Beck combines menus and recipes with the extraordinary story of her life--from her childhood in pre-World War I Normandy to madcap escapades in 1920's Paris to tragedy and triumph. Illustrated with vintage photos and drawings.
