Today marks the day Julia Child would have turned 100 years old. I have to say that the movie Julie and Julia, was the reason I first started blogging. I was in culinary school when the movie came out and it got me so excited about blogging.
Here is Julia’s biography, if you would like to know a little more about her. I remember before she passed away, she was interviewed in her garden. At that time I owned a flower shop and I was blown away at her love for her garden.
I am a member of Les Dames d Escoffier in Palm Springs. It is a culinary group that helps with fundraising and brings awareness to the art of food. We are celebrating Julia’s Birthday with a board on pinterest. This is an open board to add photos of Julia. As I have been working on this post, I have come across a few posts that I like.
One being, 12 facts of Julia Child. I especially like fact 6. Julia was so real. She said what was on her mind and she was quite amusing. I recently rented some of her tv shows from the library. I enjoy watching how things were made from scratch. There were no microwaves to speed things up.
Here is a video of some beautiful things Julia has made. Baking with Julia Child.
Julia will remain an inspiration to many including myself. Her famous recipe of Beef Bourguignon will forever be a sought after specialty, taken from the recipe book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
Happy Birthday Julia.
If you have ever made anything from Julia’s cookbook, I would love to here how it turned out.
