Synopsis

Minette's Feast introduces the iconic American chef Julia Child to a new audience of young readers through the story of her spirited cat, Minette, whom Julia adopted when living in Paris.

This lively story is complete with an author's note, a bibliography, and actual quotations from Julia Child and comes just in time for the 100th anniversary of her birth.
