A Talent For Life!

Happy Birthday Julia Child!


Yesterday would have been Julia Child's
100th birthday, so of course we had to
celebrate!  When I was a little girl, we
always watched the public television
 station Channel 13 in New York and Julia
came right into our living room.  I can
remember her so vividly, I had never heard
a voice like that before.  I grew up with her and
when I started cooking I often referred to her
books for guidance (still do).

I have always said one of the most interesting
biographies I have ever read was Julia's.
What a life!


I have visited her kitchen at the Smithsonian.


I've read lots of books about her.
Yesterday I got the new bio, Dearie.


And last night I made a layered ratatouille
over couscous with a coin of goat cheese.
It is not her recipe but it is French...


I also made a few "petites" for lunch
today, perhaps I'll enjoy one while
reading a chapter of Dearie.


I've always loved this photo of Julia
and Paul, I hope that Wonderful and I
will end up just like this someday,
working together at a long table, side by side.

Bon Appetit!
