Beard on Books

After the publication of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Julia Child was crowned the nation’s queen of French cuisine by her adoring fans, a heavy mantle she assumed with her customary optimism and zeal. In his new tome,The French Chef in America, Child’s great-nephew (and My Life in France co-author) Alex Prud’homme takes readers behind the scenes of these formative years, as Child stepped into her television studio kitchen and thus into America’s homes, ultimately redefining food television forever
