What Julia gave us…

When you hear the name Julia, you know who I mean….today would be her 100th birthday.
She was the original t.v. chef. She led the way for today’s network chefs. As entertaining as they are, none can compare to her simple, honest, joy-filled presentation.
She introduced my mother’s generation, and my generation to fine cooking, and took the mystery out of it with her humor. I remember watching her on our little, black and white set. She recorded in Cambridge, and I grew up in Concord, so I thought of her as a neighbor. It wasn’t unusual to see her dining in a local restaurant, or shopping at the market.
Her cookbooks stand the test of time, and her love of teaching shines through in the instructions as she walks you through the most complex preparation.
We were so lucky that she took to cooking, rather than her career in the foreign service.
Here’s a link to a fun video made by PBS digital (rock on!). It makes me want to go back and watch all of her shows.

Bon Appetit!

  1. Hi Claudia, I have my share of nostalgic candies I grew up with in Japan. I am nicknamed after one of the candy producer’s mascot (a full story on my blog). I like everything Caramel and mocha! Thank you for a beautiful blog. Fae. 🙂
