What did the beloved chef have in common with Arthur Schlesinger and baseball's Moe Berg? A career with the OSS, that's what. The CIA precursor's papers have recently been released, revealing Child's involvement in the agency.
Unfortunately, Julia's secret service could not be mentioned in her autobiography, My Life in France
, which is currently being adapted into a movie
starring Meryl Streep.
