About The Author
Julia Child was born in Pasadena, California, and graduated from Smith College in 1934. During World War II, she served with the Office of Strategic Services in Washington, D.C., Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), and China. After the war, her husband, Paul Child, was assigned to the U.S. Information Service at the American Embassy in Paris. It was there, in cuisine-particular France, that Julia started her culinary career, at the Cordon Bleu.
In collaboration with her two French colleagues, Simone Beck and Louisette Bertholle, she wrote Mastering the Art of French Cooking, which appeared in 1961. The book gave birth to the PBS television series The French Chef and was followed by several other series, including her Master Chef programs, in which she hosted 26 of America's well-known chefs. In her 39-part series, Baking at Julia's, which aired in 1996, she hosted 26 of the country's finest bakers.
Other books by Julia Child include From Julia Child's Kitchen and Julia and Jacques Cooking at Home. Ms. Child is an active member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, and a cofounder of The American Institute of Wine and Food.
