Happy birthday, Julia Child! If she had lived, she would be 100 today! Still a prominent foodie figure, her relevance was proven with the recent movie Julie & Julia, featuring Meryl Streep playing her character.
Famous for being a francophile, her beef bourguignon is perhaps Julia Child’s most famous recipe and the subject of her very first televised episode of ‘The French Chef’ on PBS. The original recipe can be found in Julia’s first book, “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” Click HERE for the recipe!
Standing at 6’2″ Child not only commanded attention with her tall frame, but her vibrant and warm personality. Through her television show and cookbooks, Julia demonstrated that cooking doesn’t have to be intimidating!
“Learn how to cook — try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless and above all have fun.” Another favorite quote that shows why she is so beloved, ”Always remember: If you’re alone in the kitchen and you drop the lamb, you can always just pick it up. Who’s going to know?”
You can visit her “kitchen,” which is on display at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
