Julia Child was a spy?

Wait a minute….what!?!


Well - okay a little bit off topic, but since Julia Child's former home in Cambridge is currently on the market for sale (103 Irving Street - $4.35M*) is now on the market for sale, I figured it was relevant.  Plus I am a bit of a foodie and huge fan of hers, so I found this story to be completely fascinating.  According to just released records, she worked in the old Office of Strategic Services (precursor to CIA) during WWII.  See the story in the Globe here.


That's incredible, quite a life Julia Child lived….spy and gourmet chef….talk about a renaissance woman!



*Of course - if you are interested in more details on Julia Child's former home, send me a note and I'd be happy to provide that as well…..!
