HAPPY BIRTHDAY JULIA CHILD….

on August 15, 2012

Today Julia would have turned 100 years old. WOW!!! I remember watchin her before we had food network and cooking chanel. Julia was born August 15, 1912 in Pasadena, California. In 1948 she moved to France where she developed the love for French cuisine. With the goal of adapting Americans to the French cuisine, she collaborated on a two volume cookbook “Mastering the art of French Cooking.” Julia also became a television icon with her cooking show The French Chef, and was the inspiration of the 2009 movie Julie and Julia which ironically was based on a blog. I feel this is what put cooking blogs on the map. As a child Julia’s family had accumulated a significant wealth and she never wanted for anything and went to the best of schools. Julia was known as a prankster, very athletic and adventurous. She was a very tall girl, standing at 6 foot 2. Besides cooking, Julia had a talent for golf, tennis, and small game hunting. So, on this day that she would have been 100 years old, Happy Birthday, Julia. :):) Image
