Julia Child visited Miami Book Fair International in 1989

Bon Appétit, Julia!

The late Julia Child shared her passion for food with family, friends, colleagues and fans for more than 40 years. She visited Miami Book Fair International in 1989 to promote The Way to Cook, a monumental work that continued Child’s devotion to introducing French cuisine and culinary technique to the American mainstream audience.

Child was perhaps best known as host of The French Chef, an Emmy and Peabody Award-winning television program that ran nationally for 10 years. She attracted a broad audience with her good humor and distinctively charming warble.
