Julia Child - An Inspiration for the Ages

Posted by Truffle Shuffle

Of all the chefs that have brought the wonders of flavorful food to our plates, perhaps one of the most influential is the great Julia Child. A novice cook turned master chef, Julia Child embodies a style of cooking that resonates in the minds of amateur and professional chefs alike, and probably will for ages to come. From her distinctive voice and appearance, to her masterful application of classical French cooking to homes the world over, Julia Child holds an everlasting place in our hearts... As her recipes do in our stomachs!
Julia Child's magnum opus of cooking, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, contains hundreds of recipes that bring the essence of French food into your home! Perhaps the greatest treasure of cooking tips and recipes of all time, this is a must-have collector's item for cooks and chefs of all types. I can't imagine my kitchen without it!

Julia Child and her works have reached a fame of epic proportions in our society and Julia (as well as Mastering the Art of French Cooking) is a household name. More recently, a movie detailing the lives of two women from different worlds sharing the same life-changing passion for cooking has swept the world like wildfire. I would recommend that everyone check them out; they are well worth the time. One woman's inspirational cooking and blogging to change her own life has influenced amateur cooks the world over.
