Minette’s Feast

Minette's Feast by Susanna ReichMinette’s Feast
By Susanna Reich, illustrated by Amy Bates

What do you imagine life was like with one of the world’s most beloved chefs? You might be surprised to learn that Minette, Julia Child’s cat during the late 1940s and early 1950s, was not a big fan of her human’s cooking, preferring to catch her own food. This children’s book, about the relationship between cat and chef, is delightfully told and illustrated. It really does draw you into the world of mid-last-century Paris, with its bistros and bouchers, and charms you with the warm relationship between Julia and Minette. Even better, Minette’s Feast is based on Julia Child’s own words, which is perhaps why it rings so true. There is an afterword, with a short bio of Julia Child — and a photo of her and the winsome and willful Minette (a tortoiseshell loaded with attitude!). Highly recommended for kittens of all ages and species — and it makes a great gift for the holidays!

    Now there’s a book the Human and I could both enjoy! I’m not much for the Human Foods–or at least I didn’t use to be. The Human has not tried lately since my Eating Renaissance. But you know, my Human’s no Julia Child, so maybe I’ll stick with the Whiska’s and the Fancy Feast.!

    I have several cat books, but haven’t come across this one before. Sounds great! I didn’t know Julia Child had a cat. How awesome :)
    Thanks for sharing!
