Alex Prud'homme

Join us on Zoom on Friday, February 11th at 7PM for a virtual event with Alex Prud'homme, author of the new picture book Born Hungry: Julia Child Becomes "the French Chef!"

About the Book

How did Julia Child become one of America’s most celebrated and beloved chefs? Her great-nephew reveals her story in this picture book that Jacques Pepin calls a “vivid portrait…an enjoyable read.” Julia’s kid-friendly recipe for Oeufs Brouillés (Scrambled Eggs) is included!

Julia Child was born hungry, but she was not born a chef. In fact, Julia didn’t discover her passion for cooking until she had a life-changing luncheon in France and became determined to share her newfound love of food with everyone.

In Paris, Julia devoured recipe books, shopped in outdoor markets, consumed all kinds of foods, and whipped through culinary school. And although she wasn't always successful in the kitchen, she was determined to “master the art” of French cooking. Through perseverance and grit, Julia became a chef who shared her passion with the world, making cooking fun, and turning every meal into a special event.
Alex Prud’homme’s first hand knowledge paired with Sarah Green’s vibrant and energetic illustrations showcases Julia’s life and celebrates her enduring legacy.
