I got married in 1967. Anxious to impress my husband with my cooking, I began to amass a collection of cookbooks – one of the first was MASTERING THE ART OF FRENCH COOKING by Julia Child. Coq a Vin (Chicken in Wine) was one of my husband’s absolute favorites. And Quiche Lorraine was another. When I discovered that there was a brand-new picture book about the incomparable Julia, I knew I’d want to celebrate the launch! And perhaps, because she was all about the wonders of French food, we should sing Happy Birthday in French:
Bon Anniversaire to BORN HUNGRY – Julia Child Becomes the ‘French Chef’
And huge congratulations to author Alex Prud’homme (who is Julia’s great nephew) and illustrator Sarah Green and publisher Calkins Creek/Astra.
