A Fond Farewell to Julia Child

Wednesday, 18 Aug 2004 | Food

With a heavy heart, I say goodbye to a wonderful icon of the cooking world. Julia Child passed away last week two days shy of 92. I remember watching her PBS series growing up much before I became interested in cooking. She will always have a place in my heart. I loved her gusto for life and wonderful sense of humor. My favorite quote from Julia is "If you're afraid of butter, use cream."

If you're at all interested in cooking, I suggest you get at least one of the following two cookbooks by Julia Child:

Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume 1
The Way to Cook

Both are excellent books and I own both. The first is great if you're interested in French cooking and the other is a great primer for American cooking.
