Things were really cookin' Saturday at the Westport Library.

It was all about a search for young master chefs -- in the tradition of legendary culinary personality Julia Child. The event was a contest sponsored in conjunction with the library's WestportREADS program. This year, the theme book is "My Life in France," co-authored by Child and her great-nephew, Alex Prud'Homme.

Judging the contest were Michelle and Frank Weber, the owners of Cocoa Michelle and the new CM Market in the Saugatuck Center development.
