Julia Child would be 100 Today

My brother sent this.

The New York Times  has a researched article worth the read on some of the Julia Child favorites.  It says most of us have cooked (at least once) her famous recipe for coq au vin or boeuf bourguignon or maybe an omelette.  I surely did, back in the day.  We might take a few more short cuts these days.

Do you have a favorite Child recipe?


  1. I remember seeing her on TV when I was a kid and noticing the high lilt in her voice. I think the Galloping Gourmet made a bigger impression on me. I loved the movie about her and I went on to read another book about her life.

  2. WOW, that is a great tribute to her! She was one of a kind! Have a blessed day and thanks for sharing this video! HUGS!

  3. That was a fun tribute. I am not a good cook but when I watch those that are, I get a little burst of enthusiasm (which only lasts 5 minutes!)today I was in an Asian cash and carry and got inspired to buy gram flour and biriani ingredients - bunches of corriander, all the Indian ladies in there were very helpful with advice on how to make my dish - I am trying to hang on to my 5 mins of enthusiasm this time and use it to make something nice.

  4. I don't think I've tried any of her recipes altho I was tempted to cook through her cookbook like the gal did in the movie. I loved her refreshing spirit and outlook on cooking and life.

  5. I've been to her display at the American History Museum several times, and I remember seeing one of the TV episodes where she drank too much red wine while cooking ... and I remember seeing her with other cooks on her show, several times. Formidable and admirable lady! And I love the movie Julie and Julia, though I don't know if it's accurate.
