Too busy, perhaps, getting ready for a site launch I have only now found news that Julia Child has been… er, whisked away.
What an amazing, rewarding, rich and full life she led! She threw herself into her work — foibles and all — and we all eat better for it. Just as the American foodie world has long heralded James Beard as its grandfather, I do hope that Julia is given her proper plaudits as the grand damme of American cuisine; she well deserves it.
Soon, very soon, I’ll cook up something appropriate in her honor… which, as I understand, should have me employ every pot, pan and saucier in my kitchen. [Herself might tell you I can do that even on less than special occasions.]
But first… back to work!
