've been reading Julia Child's My Life in France, an account of her time spent in Paris and Marseille where her adventures and career in cooking first began. So far I am very much loving this book! Julia has such a charming, innocent, and playful way with her words and her journey to become one of America's most beloved French chefs is admirable. Her diligence and ambition to learn everything about French cuisine as well as the language and lifestyle is very inspirational. Julia discovered her passion for cooking around her mid 30s and exercised much gusto and courage to reach the height of her skill. Reading this book has been so much fun and motivates me to delve into my own passions with much more umph! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves cooking, france, and is looking for an easy and light read!
