Happy Belated Birthday Julia!

August 16, 2012

“This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook- try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun!”

― Julia ChildMy Life in France

Yesterday would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday.

She left behind a legacy including cookbooks, television shows and most importantly, the idea that cooking is a creative pursuit.  I believe that any vaguely intelligent person can read a recipe and prepare a meal. But to be a really great cook, one must find joy in the process, and have the courage to experiment.

Thank you Julia, for inspiring me and the legions of people who mastered the art of cooking because of you.

Happy Birthday!
