License to Cook?

One day during World War II, a woman joined the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) with the intent of becoming an American spy. The woman in question? Future culinary wizard Julia Child.

[Julia was sent to Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) where she met and fell in love with Paul Child. When he was sent to Paris, Julia followed. Inspired by a meal of oysters on the half-shell, sole meuniere, green salad, and a bottle of Pouilly-Fuiss?, she enrolled at the Cordon Bleu school and, upon graduation, started her own cookery class.]
