During her time of service, she [Julia] met her husband. Paul Child was also an OSS officer. He was well traveled, and it was he who opened Julia’s eyes to appreciate fine French cuisine. The two married in September 1946."
Julia: "We were based at a lovely old tea plantation, and I could look out my office window into Paul`s office. I was still unformed. He was ten years older than me and worldly; he courted various other women there, but we slowly warmed up to each other."
