Step inside the charming cottage in Provence (La Peetch) that became the summer home for iconic American chef Julia Child while she co-wrote her celebrated Mastering The Art of French Cooking.

McKenna Held, also a chef, bought the house in 2015, and now runs it as a vacation retreat, a wedding venue, and keeping with its roots, The Courageous Cooking™ School. In fact, McKenna has kept Julia’s kitchen pretty much the same as it was.
