18. "My Life in France" by Julia Child and 19. "Night Watch" by Terry Pratchett

Last Week's Book Terry Pratchett' "Night Watch"

Very nice, very funny, DiscWorld Novel.

This Weeks's book "My Life in France" by Julia Child

This is the Julia Child 1/2 of the movie 'Julie and Julia' and it is just incredible. Autobiographical account of her life with her husband Paul Child working with the US Embassy in Paris. Wonderful anecdotes of living in Paris from teh late 40's to the early 50's. The photos are mainly by her husband Paul and I especially liked the cards they sent out for Valentine's Day, as they never got araound to mailing cards for Christmas.

What really amazed me was that on arriving in France she did not speak French, and couuld not cook, she was 37. Let that sink in for a minute, Julia Child learned to cook after she was 37.

She comes across as just as wonderful and kind as she did in her cooking show, I am struck by how much I would have liked to sneak into a dinner there! She is always so upbeat and you get a feeling that you really could do anything if you just set your mind to it.

The stories about Paris in the late 40's are wonderful, the freezing apartment at 81 Rue de la University, the terrible fog one year, you could see it swirling in the houses! The strike, the stove that used 5 tons of coal every 6 months (this did not make the apartment warm!) and the little electric next to it that never got hot enough to even make toast... how depressing Bonn was by comparison when they were transfered.

It's also about Writing "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" by Julia Child, Simone Beck, Louisette Bertholle, and getting it published. Her excitement at finding a better way to make mayonaise, and how to make burre blanc...

For the record, plan a few nice meals over the course of reading this... eating at McDonald's will just make you sad.

Ha, her sister who never really learns to speak French, and in a beauty salon says (in French.. I can look it up) "Would you like to cut the horses before or after the mushrooms?"


Now I have to consider the possibilty of actually making a cassoulet
