Hello again, everyone. Today finds us with a new book review and this time it’s The French Chef in America: Julia Child’s Second Actby Alex Prud’homme.

This book centers on the story of Julia Child’s years as TV personality and beloved cookbook author, a well-documented sequel in spirit to My Life in France, by her great-nephew.

While Julia Child is synonymous with French cooking, but her legacy runs much deeper. Now, her great-nephew and My Life in France coauthor vividly recounts the myriad ways in which she profoundly shaped how we eat today. He shows us Child in the aftermath of the publication of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, suddenly finding herself America’s first lady of French food and under considerable pressure to embrace her new mantle.
