Praise for Madeleine de Jean’s Bouter en Avant! Full Speed Ahead with Julia Child:
“Madeleine’s telling of a wonderfully fun relationship brings back so many memories. Being with both her and Julia at many times and events along the food and wine road. I remember two people who enjoyed and appreciated every moment in life. I raise a glass to them both!” – John Scharffenberger, Scharffenberger Sparkling and Scharffen Berger Chocolates.
When Madeleine de Jean opened the first wine bar in the US in New Orleans with Chef Paul Prudhomme and became the first woman sommelier in the world, she was expanding her dramatic talents from stage and screen, which had been honed at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and Paris’s Comedie Francaise Conservatoire. Her detecting and tasting in archives and vineyards for decades resulted in her first novel, The Night Julius Caesar Invented Champagne, in her latest book, Bouter en Avant! Full Speed Ahead with Julia Child, Madeleine shares her touching tribute to her friend, Julia Child.
