The film also is based on Child’s posthumous memoir, "My Life in France,” written with Alex Prud’homme.

Powell, who grew up a few miles from where I did, said in a recent phone interview that the surrealism of her existence hasn’t yet ebbed, but she’s learned to live with it.

She said she considers herself a writer first, who uses food as her muse. Her second memoir, "Cleaving: A Story of Marriage, Meat and Obsession,” is due in bookstores in December.

"I think two memoirs before the age of 40 is plenty,” she said. "I think I’d like to venture into fiction next.”
