Women’s History Month: Julia Child

Women's History Month: Julia Child How did a California girl become known around the globe as “The French Chef”? Julia met Paul Child when they both worked for the Office of Strategic Services (forerunner of the CIA) in Ceylon. After their marriage, the couple was posted to Paris where Julia tasted French food for the first time and found it “a transforming experience.” A self-described “late bloomer,” she wasn’t much of a cook at the time, but being an enthusiastic soul, Julia enrolled in the Cordon Bleu. She went on to co-write the cookbook that changed American cooking―Mastering the Art of French Cooking—and star in educational television’s first cooking program. She would later become the first educational television personality to win an Emmy. Besides all the recipes and techniques Julia provided, she inspired generations to cook with a sense of humor and an adventurous attitude—and not to be mortified if things didn’t work out perfectly. Bon appétit! “I didn’t get started on life until I was about thirty-two, which was good because I was old enough to appreciate it.” Julia Child
