A lovely discussion between Judith Jones and Alex Prud'homme about their new books, The Tenth Muse: My Life in Food and My Life in France (co-authored by Prud'homme with Julia Child). As a young editor at Knopf, Jones edited Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and a relationship blossomed between her and Child. Since then, Jones has worked with a glorious lineup of cookbook writers, from Madhur Jaffrey to Marion Cunningham, and has become an editorial legend.

She and Prud'homme discuss Child's move to France, where she found her calling to be a chef; the process of writing a cookbook; and Prud'homme's collaboration with Child. Many colorful and delicious anecdotes are related. The evening begins with Jones reading an excerpt from her memoir, followed by Prud'homme reading a piece from Child's memoir.

This special event was recorded live as part of the Thalia Book Club series as Peter Norton Symphony Space in New York City. Download and start listening now!
