Mastering the Art of FrenchCooking with Julia Child

Julia Child  Julia Carolyn Child (born in Pasadena, California 1912-2004) was an American chef, author, and television personality.

In 1963, Boston’s WGBH launched The French Chef television series, which made her a national celebrity, earning her the Peabody Award in 1965 and an Emmy in 1966. Several public television shows and numerous cookbooks followed.
