Julia Child 1912-2004

Julia Child died in her sleep yesterday at the age of 91. Every American chef, gourmand, and epicure owes her a great deal, whether they recognize it or not.

"What's dangerous and discouraging about this era is that people really are afraid of their food. Sitting down to dinner is a trap, not something to enjoy. People should take their food more seriously. Learn what you can eat and enjoy it thoroughly."

Not in this house, never in this house!

Pramas loves that Julia "stuck it to the Nazis." No other hosts of nationally televised cooking shows can say that (I can imagine tought guy Tony Bourdain making a go of it, but Emeril? Bobby Flay? Disgustingly perky Rachael Ray? Bah!).
