St. Julia's 100th

Julia Child would have been 100, had she lived on. She was my inspiration, my teacher, my idol. Without her and Graham Kerr, my life would have been very different.

Julia was a revolutionary. She changed the way we cooked at home, and laid down the rubbermats for women to get into the food industry. She made the complicated clear, she made the impossible doable, and she made us laugh all the way through it.

Here's to you, St. Julia.

Austan, nobody could hear that lady's voice and not listen. It intrigued with every sentence and startled a frenetic world with an underpinning of jollity. I loved her and I didn't even cook! Later, I just laughed at my culinary failures like she did at her very rare ones. World makes less sense without her. Great post.

Geo.- She was one of a kind. I really like that- the world makes less sense without her. It does.
