"The only real stumbling block is fear of failure.
In cooking you've got to have a what-the-hell attitude."

Julia Child, in her own words...

"Life itself is the proper binge."
~ Julia Child


La Belle Cuisine


These days it takes a lot of courage to open breaking-news e-mail
messages. Not being totally willing, despite the state of the world,
to bury my head in the sand, this morning I forced myself to have
a look. And never mind that it is Friday the 13th…
What did I find, courtesy of ABC News?

“Culinary expert Julia Child dies.”

Ohmigod! How could that be? I found myself bursting into tears,
faced once again with the death of someone not of my acquaintance,
but nonetheless close to my heart. My feelings today are evocative
of the pain of “losing” Craig Claiborne and Eudora Welty

Okay. Time to face reality, right? We all realize, albeit somewhat
unwillingly,  that our immortality is a fact. Inevitable. Still, someone
whose presence has been so profoundly influential, so instrumental
in shaping our lives, will surely live forever, right? Well, yes and no.
Julia Child’s body  has departed this earth. She has "passed", as they
say here in south Louisiana. But her legacy is, indeed, immortal. And
for that, I am profoundly grateful.

In the course of reading an astounding number of tributes to Julia
Child’s eminence, I read something in Tom Fitzmorris’s Menu Daily
that I had been thinking all day long, even as I tried to write words
appropriate to this sad occasion:

“Julia was one of those figures so distinguished that the praise
she's received for years -- and will now will flood around her
name -- is superfluous. Her work speaks for itself and its author.
Buy the books and read them instead of stuff like this.”

Amen, Tom. Took the words right out of my mouth…
Get in the kitchen and cook!

(from our 90th-birthday tribute to Julia, August 2002):

"For some time now I have given considerable thought to Julia Child’s
imminent – and eminent – 90th birthday celebration. Even managed to jot
down a line or two in tribute and intended to finalize it this weekend. And
then came the Times-Picayune piece. That did it. I’ve decided to let it
speak for itself, as well as for Julia Child.
How honored we were to have one of Julia’s birthday celebrations right
here in New Orleans. We were privileged as well to have a chef of Michael Lomonaco’s stature visit to co-host the Birthday Bash and reminisce about
the city responsible for his culinary epiphany.
Just a word or two though, based on my own experience: Gigi, (my mother,
God rest her soul) literally forced “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”
(1961 edition, okay?) on me at a tender age. Thanks to Gigi's foresight, I am
blessed to be among those (and we are many) who owe a tremendous debt of
gratitude to Julia Child for her tireless guidance, enlightenment, inspiration,
and encouragement through the decades. She set a tremendous example for
us, not only with her culinary expertise, but also with her marvelous sense of
humor, lack of "Attitude" as she became a world-renowned figure, and her
indomitable grace and aplomb in sticky situations.
Bloopers such as “First you take a leek…” would perhaps have destroyed
the career of those less self-assured than our Julia. Long may she reign."


Julia Child, in her own words...
Happy 90th Birthday, Julia!
