Fun fact: Sidonie Coryn, a longtime resident of St. Charles, Illinois, was the illustrator for both volumes of Julia Child's famous Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Though she knew little about cooking, Paul Child would send her black and white photos of the dishes and preparations. She passed away in 2015.
