Femme Fatale of Food

Julia Child 1912-2004

What can be said that hasn’t been said about the legendary Julia Child? I remember watching her practical culinary instruction and fun-loving chatter on her PBS series as a child. I have looked up to her as a culinary inspiration ever since, even naming my firstborn Julia. She is credited for introducing French cuisine to America and making it much more approachable to folks on this side of the pond. I highly encourage folks to try some of her lesser-known recipes in her debut cookbook, the double-volume Mastering the Art of French Cooking. While some are daunting, it contains some real gems. I am grateful to own a first edition of this legendary compilation, and my (pictured) second volume is signed by Simone Beck, who co-authored this with Julia Child.

A couple of lesser-known fun facts about JC: She became interested in food while living in China, working as a spy. Her last meal before her death at age 91 was a bowl of homemade French onion soup. Lastly, and my favorite, she credited her long life to “red meat and gin.”
