Julia Child's Birthday!

Julia Child would have been 100 today.
She really did influence my love of cooking.
Who influenced your cooking style? Does anyone inspire you to cook?

She was quite a pioneer.

Love Julia Child!

On her birthday, my husband and I watched a clip of her old show and hung on every word. She not only showed you how to cook it and serve it, but how to EAT it! (Oh, and what wine to drink with it!)

So many people influenced my cooking style, but I have to say my grandmother was the biggest. She was the first person to teach me to cook anything, standing on a chair by the stove with her as she showed me how to fry an egg over easy.

She also taught me that cooking is an art. Not that she said that to me out loud, but she rarely used a recipe. I learned how to savor flavors and anticipate how they would blend together. My grandmother Emma was a creative genius in the kitchen!

LOL the best thing about Julia Child was that she was an unabashed tippler. Who can think of even one episode of her show where she didn't imbibe in the wine or the sherry whilst cooking?
