Bon Appetit! The delicious life of Julia Child by Jessie Hartland – not just for kids

While Bon Appetit! The delicious life of Julia Child by Jessie Hartland was written for children, I still found it quite delightful.

It resonates on many levels.  The illustrations are fun, the handling of Julia Child's life felt insightful to me.



There are a couple of recipes in the book but I didn't try them – one was for crepes and the other a galantine.



If you have a spare half an hour and are prepared to be engaged and amused, I recommend this book to you.
