La Douceur de Vivre

I savored My Life in France by Julia Child for months.  I didn’t want it to end. Julia and Paul Child were inspiring people.  They loved food, wine, art, travel, friends, family and France. They loved with gusto! 

Julia met Paul Child when they worked for the United States government during World War II. After the war they parted ways only to discover that they didn’t want to be apart. To make a sweet story short they married. After the war Paul continued working for the United States government in Europe: France, Germany and Norway. Mrs. Child accompanied her husband to his new postings. Julia decided to go to the cooking school Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and found her calling as a chef,  best selling writer and TV personality.


This memoir is peppered with Paul’s photographs and touching stories about their life together. Join the crowd and make a reservation for My Life in France. And while you're waiting, find books, movies and more about and by the lovely Julia here.
