Julia Child has become "trendy" again with the release of the upcoming movie Julie and Julia, which was partially based on this book. It is an interesting first-hand account of how Julia found her life passion in food in 1950s Paris, reconstructed from her letters and supplemented with personal photos. She was certainly a Renaissance woman before her time, and continues to serve as an example of a strong woman even today.
