Whoa! Did you hear the news that Julia Child was a WWII spy? Wow — and you thought whipping up a perfect bernaise sauce was exciting!

Yep, turns out the woman who was pretty much single-handedly responsible for popularizing gourmet French cooking in the US was also a genuine cloak-and-dagger spy (before she became The French Chef, though).

Potentially casts the world travels of Anthony Bordain in a whole new light, eh? Wonder if there’s anything he’s not telling us about all those trips overseas…
