Even in her twilight years it was still great to watch her work in the kitchen. She has rightfully been given credit for introducing the techniques of French cuisine to mainstream American cooking. Our pallettes and stomachs can surely thank her for that one.

And to think she lived to 91 eating all that buttery and cream heavy food. Must have been all that wine.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

a great article/obit

"People are afraid of French food because of all the cream and butter,'' she said. "But you don't see all those big fat people over there that you see lumbering around Disneyland.''

I've tried to watch her cooking shows in the past, but I really couldn't; something about her kinda creeped me out. It was either her voice or the hunchback. I did watch a lot of the shows she did with Jacques Pepin, she let him run the show more of less while she observed amd occassionally commented.

I was amazed to read that she was 6'2". That is quite tall for a woman. Not to mention it explains the hunched back.

She was a unique lady and a heck of a cook..

Did you see that last PBS show she had about two three years ago?

The back wall of the kitchen/set was scary.

That woman had more knives then anybody I know.

Julia Child was one of my favorite cooks!!!!!!!!! I still watch repeat shows from years ago....she truly was one of a kind!!!  Big thumbs up I have one of her cook books on French Cusine and it is fantastic!!

She always made me laugh when she was preparing chicken...she always had to give it a smack and then she'd pull out those huge knives!!!

Vaporlock....You are thinking of Dan Akroyd

Edit: I do have to agree with you, one of the last interviews I saw about her, she was discussing a controversy that erupted after a taping of that last "Great Chefs" series she did on PBS.

On of the cooks made, pan fired live crab, which looked pretty good, but all of the animal rights nutballs went nuts over her and the guest chef....can't remember his name.....spliting a live crab in two on TV with one of those big ass knives and then putting it in the pan to cook.

She was a great gourmet who had the taste and wit to present and promote so many chefs from around the world. Her knowledge of French and other cuisine, combined with her ability to make ordinary folks watching the show understand that they too could prepare meals this way made supper tables better for a great many people, represents a great contirbution to our culture.

Her life and service to our country should be remembered, she served in the OSS during WWII in the CBI theater, and her husband served in the CIA afterwards (her cooking school was called the Culinary Institute of America, or CIA for short).

Go see her kitchen in the Smithsonian, and remember that while she never saw a knife she did not buy, she only used three basic knives. And use real butter because nothing else tastes the same.
