Femme Fatale of Food May
Julia Child 1912-2004
What can be said that hasn’t been said about the legendary Julia Child? As a child, I remember watching her practical culinary instruction and fun-loving chatter on her PBS series. I looked up to her as a culinary inspiration ever since, even naming my first born, 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 91 was a homemade French onion soup. Lastly, and my favorite, she credited her long life to “red meat and gin.”
Femme Fatale of Food June
Nora Daza 1928 – 2013
Sweet, sour, and salty. The combination of these three bold flavors is commonly used to describe Filipino cuisine. Not only does Filipino food taste amazing, but the presentation of this island cuisine is also pretty special too.
Nora Daza was a culinary icon and world-famous Filipino chef. She starred in many television and radio cooking shows and was the author of six cookbooks. Her cooking experience included Filipino cuisine, French, Chinese, Spanish, and American cuisine. Her highly anticipated first restaurant opened in Manila and spotlighted French cuisine. Seven years later, she introduced the French to Filipino food by opening the first restaurant of its kind in Paris. She gave her eldest son the responsibility of running this restaurant, Aux Iles Phillippines, at 22. Nora continued to pioneer the field and headed to the United States in 1975 to open the first Filipino fine-dining restaurant in Manhattan. Some of Nora’s children got bit by the culinary bug too. One of her sons, Chef Sandy Daz, is a famous chef in his own right, and after working in her mother’s restaurants for many years, her daughter, Nina, became editor of Appetite magazine. Fun Facts about Nora- “Let’s Cook with Nora” was a popular wedding and shower gift for many Filipino newlyweds from the 1960s-1980s. “Let’s Cook with Nora” came out in 1965 and is still considered one of the best-documented recipe collections of Filipino recipes Skilled in the kitchen and in her studies, Nora obtained her Master of Science in Restaurant Management from Cornell University 1956.
