My favorite quotes from Julia Child.
“If you’re afraid of butter, use cream.”
“Always remember: If you’re alone in the kitchen and you drop the lamb, you can always just pick it up. Who’s going to know?”
“The best way to execute French cooking is to get good and loaded and whack the hell out of a chicken. Bon appetit.”
“I think every woman should have a blowtorch.” (I do!)
From a Baking with Julia episode on PBS: The chef accidentally cracked some egg shell into the cake batter. Before he could fish it out , Julia said, very nonchalantly.. “Oh, leave it in there, extra calcium.”, and she meant it!

You were, and continue to be a mentor and inspiration to women all over the world, not to mention anyone and everyone who loves to cook, whether it be professionally and/or at home. There was never a time in my life I didn’t know who you were, and you will forever be alive in my world. May your souffles continue to rise in the heavens. Bon Appetit, dear lady!
