Overview

With a bubbling personality, oversized enthusiasm, and obvious talent and love for cooking, Julia Child almost singlehandedly started a cooking revolution when she burst onto television screens in the 1960s. Before long, Americans who were inspired by her example began cooking French food at home and discovered the pleasure that preparing good food can provide. Yet Child did not grow up knowing how to cook or even with an interest in fine cuisine. Her story is one of an American woman's quest to find herself, to find her passion, and then to find a way to share that passion with the world. It is the story of how Julia McWilliams of Pasadena, California, transformed herself into Julia Child, "The French Chef."

Covering noted historic and contemporary figures in the arts, business, sports, entertainment, politics, sciences, and social advocacy, among other fields, Women of Achievement profiles women who have made significant and influential contributions to their professions and to the world at large. Each book in the series gives students a complete overview of the subject's life, as well as insight into her professional and personal motivations, while also providing historical context to her achievements.
