  2. I love watching The French Chef . . . even if I wouldn’t touch most of what Julia cooked with a 10 foot pole. :D

  5. I love Julia Child’s cooking and watched many of her videos. She featured many dishes prepared with real butter. I appreciate the flavor and creamy texture that butter adds to sauces. Fat and calories, not so much, but still I am a fan of butter and Julia Child. Great post, Tammy. I know Julua Child made vegetables stand out, too. She was a culinary artist. Blessings to you, Tammy…

    • She was really remarkable and what was so remarkable about the dinner was the number of people who could tell a story about her from experience. She was very accessible. Did you see Julie and Julia? If you haven’t, I think you’d like it.

    Wow! What an amazing meal! Julia Child inspired so many of us to start cooking. One of my most treasured wedding gifts was “The Way to Cook” by Julia Child. That book is always my go-to book when I need to know the basics. Thank you, Tammy, for inspiring us in a new way…Julia would be proud!

    Looks like so much fun! I just started to read Julie and Julia so I’m leaning a bit about her! What an inspirational woman!

    • I learned a lot and really came to respect her. She didn’t begin cooking until her mid-thirties and she loved her husband so much!

    • It definitely was Kate. I need to do more reading because the more I learn about her, the more intriguing she becomes. And the very special thing about this meal was that it was not only all of her recipes but someone at every table had known her and was able to tell stories.
