On Julia Child's 100 Birthday


Today marks what would bring been Julia Child's 100th birthday. She's a bit similar America's culinary mother, the adult woman who encouraged together with cajoled us into the kitchen to endure run improve cooks, amongst her humour together with her tin exercise attitude. I want I had a nifty personal Julia Child story, but alas, I don't.  I tin alone percentage that similar then many others, I bring collected her cookbooks, cooked many of her recipes together with thoroughly enjoyed watching her on TV.

Right right away I am inwards the midst of reading Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child, the most comprehensive biography of Julia Child, written past times Bob Spitz, someone who non alone knew her, but admits to having had a trounce on her. It's over 500 pages long together with includes lots of anecdotes but it's actually her graphic symbol that shines through inwards the majority together with makes it such a proficient read. You tin read an excerpt online.  

Also on my nightstand is a children's majority that features Julia Child. Minette's Feast has illustrations that are somewhat reminiscent of Maurice Sendak. The majority is short, perfect for bedtime reading. It incorporates tidbits together with quotes from Julia Child, but it's actually simply the backdrop for a fictional floor well-nigh her cat. It's calorie-free together with fluffy (kind of similar the cat!), together with it volition definitely delight real immature children to a greater extent than than adults, dissimilar Bon Appetit: The Delicious Life of Julia Child, a children's majority for slightly older kids, that I believe all Julia Child fans volition relish.
