Colette Rossant (au). In 1947, as Paris recovers from the war, young Colette returns to the city of her birth after 8 years spent among Egyptian relatives in Cairo. Initially Paris seems gray & forbidding, esp. after her mother abandons her to the care of her stern grandmother. Yet Paris still proves the place where Colette awakens to her senses. Her transformation begins when she is taken under the wing of the family cook, Georgette, who introduces Colette to the city’s markets & inspires a love for French cooking. Colette is 16 when her mother returns with a new husband, & she soon realizes an affinity with her new stepfather. He introduces Colette to her first truffle & her gastronomical self. He will also be the one to support her when she falls in love & runs away with a young American.
