With her opening "Hello, this is Julia Child!" we are welcomed in to her kitchen and given the opportunity to learn as she challenges us to discover the joy of cooking for ourselves. As she proceeds through the preparation of the food for the day, her unique personality and style shine forth. There is a warmth about Julia that makes you feel at home, kind of like your favorite aunt is teaching you how to cook. It's been said that her whole life she always grabbed life with both hands and that certainly is true in the kitchen. She never uses a utensil when her hands can do the job better. There truly is magic in the way she puts ingredients together and a delicious dish comes forth, ready to be served with pride. By the time the food is prepared, lessons in cooking and in life have been taught. We know how to learn from our mistakes and to be fearless when trying new techniques. Most of all, we have learned to have fun while cooking and not to take ourselves too seriously. With a big smile and her signature "Bon appetit!" Julia bids us adieu until the next time.
