Sharing and Cooking with Julia Child

As I was putting this blog post together my intention was to share a recipe from one of Julia Child’s cookbooks, but things don’t always go as planned.  I have expanded from one recipe to four and added some personal stories relating to Julia Child.  I hope you enjoy this blog post and maybe be inspired to try one of her recipes. Bon Appetit!

My earliest introduction to Julia Child was during my childhood years.  My parents would tune to her television cooking shows on PBS and often times I was there to watch it with them. Having followed her over the years, I didn’t attempt to make anything she featured on her shows or from her cookbooks until my later years when I started to cook for Bill and I.  Early in our marriage, Bill noticed I was missing one particular cookbook and surprised me with a brand new copy of  Mastering the Art of French Cooking. The cookbook became my resource for basic cooking questions such as how to boil eggs, cook vegetables, and bake simple desserts. I can’t recall which particular recipe was my first attempt, but one I do remember well was trying to follow all the steps to the recipe on how to make the perfect scrambled eggs {oafs brouillés}. The recipe called for 8 eggs…I might have reduced the quantity by half for the two of us and I think it came out well and we ate it. I have expanded my repertoire since then, but there are still many more recipes that I look forward to trying.  Julia Child published her first cookbook in 1961 and her last book came out in 2006, My Life in France.  To see the entire collection of all her cookbooks, the Julia Child Foundation has on their website a page chronicling them all and when they were published.
