August the 15th marks the 100th birthday of Julia Child. On this day, the world celebrates her life and her legacy of wonderful cookbooks, TV programs, and just plain good taste. Julia’s most famous cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking: Volume 1 first went into print in 1961 and has stayed in print ever since. She also penned several other titles, including Volume 2 of the Mastering series and her memoirs My Life in France.
Here on fullybookedonline, we’ve chosen to pay tribute to her with our favorite quotes that came from Julia Child, plus an extra one from a little movie we love (we miss you too, Norah Ephron!).
We agree, Paul. Julia has added flavor to our kitchens, our dining rooms, and — most of all — our lives. Thank you, Julia Child. We celebrate you today.
