She wrote over 30 books including "Je Sais Cuisiner" which sold over 6 million copies. Her cookbooks were easily read and aimed to appeal to young families. As an educator, she taught home economics and subsequently became "Inspectrice generale de l'enseignement menager de la Ville de Paris" and then the country's Inspector General overseeing the teaching of Home Economics.
