Julia Child

Five Reasons Julia Child Is Better Than Any Tv Chef Today « The Provision Room

You know the movie Julie & Julia? Yeah, Mrs. Child was so not impressed. She wasn’t into publicity stunts. Her editor spoke for her saying, “Flinging around four-letter words when cooking isn’t attractive, to me or Julia. She didn’t want to endorse it. What came through on the blog was somebody who was doing it almost for the sake of a stunt.

She enjoyed her life until the very end. Her last meal was French Onion Soup, at the ripe old age of 92. Take that diet-dictocrats.

    Sure, she loved food–to cook it and to eat it. But, the reason we all love her is because, I think we all wished we could pull up a stool to her kitchen counter and have a chat. In the end, she was about people. Food was a glorious means to an end. She said, “Remember, ‘No one’s more important than people’! In other words, friendship is the most important thing–not career or housework, or one’s fatigue–and it needs to be tended and nurtured.”  She nurtured her marriage, too. “We had a happy marriage because we were together all the time. We were friends as well as husband and wife. We just had a good time.”
