Behind the Movie: Find out more about Julia Child

August 20th, 2009

Feeling inspired to learn more about Julia Child after seeing Julie & Julia?

You’ve come to the right place.

There’s Julia’s memoir, My Life in France which helped to inspire the film and will whet your appetite for even more.

And, you can read about what it was like to work with Julia Child throughout her illustrious career, in The Tenth Muse, the stunning memoir by Judith Jones, who was Julia Child’s friend and editor (and, a huge culinary powerhouse in her own right). Then, read Judith’s take on how Julia Child would have reacted to the movie.

Last but not least, there’s Appetite for Life by Noel Riley Fitch. According to The Washington Post, the biography gives readers “a real feel for the relentless work that went into the much-massaged Mastering the Art of French Cooking.”
