Once upon a time, there was a towering girl who would inspire a culinary revolution in America. Her name was Julia. Julia was a spy during World War II, but when she met her husband abroad--she withheld one important secret: she did not know how to cook. She soon enrolled as the first woman to attend Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France. She learned how to cook delicious food, bake extravagant cakes, and create tasty recipes. Julia changed the face of cooking in America forever.
