Description
Through intimate and compelling photographs taken by her husband Paul Child, a gifted photographer, France is a Feast documents how Julia Child first discovered French cooking and the French way of life. Paul and Julia moved to Paris in 1948 where he was cultural attaché for the US Information Service, and in this role he met Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Brassai, and other leading lights of the photography world. As Julia recalled: "Paris was wonderfully walkable, and it was a natural subject for Paul."

Their wanderings through the French capital and countryside, frequently photographed by Paul, would help lead to the classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and Julia's brilliant and celebrated career in books and on television. Though Paul was an accomplished photographer (his work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art), his photographs remained out of the public eye until the publication of Julia's memoir, My Life in France, in which several of his images were included. Now, with more than 200 of Paul's photographs and personal stories recounted by his great-nephew Alex Prud'homme, France is a Feast not only captures this magical period in Paul and Julia's lives, but also brings to light Paul Child's own remarkable photographic achievement.
