Today would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday. We all know what this lady has done for those of us in the food world, and she has become such a big part of American History.
When I worked at Blue Ginger in Boston, we’d see Julia come in about once a month. She lived in nearby Cambridge. The open Kitchen in that restaurant allowed me to work less than 5 feet away from the living legend everytime she came in. When someone who has paved the way for what I wanted to do was so close, I couldn’t help but get goosebumps every time she was near.
Many of her recipes and techniques are the benchmark of how chefs, both professional and professional in their own minds, cook today.
Cheers to the life of Julia Child, and her 100 years of contributions to our American food culture!
