Julia Child, an inspiration

A few days ago I watched a documentary on Julia Child. I’m saying to myself, Why am I watching this? I don’t eat meat and everything she cooked grossed me out.

Nevertheless, her story was an inspiration. She had a beautiful love story. She also had a story about a woman rising to the top in a man’s world, with her husband at her side, when only male chefs were allowed in restaurant kitchens. She was a late bloomer who didn’t get on television until she was in her 50s. And it took over 12 years to write her first cook book–back in the days before computers, she typed (and tested) all her recipes over and over again till they met her idea of perfection.

She was also a cancer survivor who kept going, and did so much charity work. Even though the food she cooked wasn’t healthy, she lived to be 91 years old! This is proof that it’s not about what you put into your mouth, but what you put into your soul. Julia Child was a way cool inspiration!

  • Dan Aykroyd’s impersonation of Julia Child was one of his best. Aykroyd was actually a huge fan of Julia Child and she really did cut off the tip of her finger before going on the Tom Snyder show – which was how Aykroyd came up with the idea of cutting off his finger on the show.
