Description

Junior Library Guild Selection

How did Julia Child become one of America's most celebrated and beloved chefs? Her grandnephew 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 firsthand knowledge paired with Sarah Green's vibrant and energetic illustrations showcases Julia's life and celebrates her enduring legacy.

Born Hungry is a delightful picture book detailing Julia Child's life before she became a celebrity chef. The illustrations are bright and fun, which children of all ages will enjoy. I love that the book includes a section at the end that includes important works to learn more about Julia Child, including books, TV shows, movies, and podcasts. They also include Julia Child's scrambled eggs recipe, which is perfect for an aspiring chef. This book will be a hit with the young foodie (or Julia Child fan) in your life.

Thank you NetGalley, Alex Prud'homme and Astra Publishing House for the ARC of Born Hungry. This is my personal review.
Born Hungry is a nonfiction children’s book about how Julia Child became known as “The French Chef”.
The story along with the wonderful illustrations give the reader a quick glimpse of her life and how she became the wonderful chef she did.
If you know of an aspiring chef this is a beautiful book to give them. It is written so expertly that they will want to get into the kitchen and learn the art of cooking.
Her recipe for scrambled eggs is written so you know exactly why things are happening as you make the recipe.

Oh my gosh I love this book! As a chef I love to incorporate cooking books with my daughter so she can somewhat relate to my career. I love Julia Child and when I saw this I knew I had to review it! The graphics are beautiful, the story isn't overwhelmingly factual for a child. The recipes in the back of the book are great for cooking together in the kitchen! I will absolutely be purchasing this book!
