Life, Love and Food

jchildsI had the pleasure of seeing Julie and Julia over the weekend. Julia Childs is such a refreshing change from today’s celebrity chefs who spend more time pitching pots and pans and building a brand than they spend in the kitchen. I admire her zest for life, her loving and supportive marriage, and her ability to find something she simply enjoys doing.  I’ve decided that despite a sweltering kitchen I will make it a point to return to my own tiny kitchen to cook, to bake, and to cultivate my own love of food. I spend far too much time and money in restaurants than I do in my own kitchen. I couldn’t wait to see the movie, but my friends and I are planning an outing to view it again. This time we will each create one of Julia’s dishes to enjoy as a pre-movie treat.

I’m also eager to return to Washington, DC to visit Julia Child’s Kitchen at the Smithsonian. Imagine, a kitchen that values function over aesthetics – all with a 60s mod decor. Love it!
