How Beloved Chef and Entrepreneur Julia Child Conquered the World: An Illustrated Life Story

When I was a kid, we didn’t watch a lot of regular television. PBS was on a lot of the time, and that’s how I, like so many others, was introduced to Julia. I wasn’t even really allowed to help in the kitchen that much when I was really young, so what she was doing just seemed magical. I was transfixed from the moment the opening bars of “The French Chef” (in reruns) began playing, all the way through to the final product. 

Still, today, even after all this time, and even after learning how to create my own “kitchen magic,” watching Julia Child cook is still a huge thrill for me, and I continue to learn from her. When I think about the culinary goals ahead of me, including graduation from culinary school the same year I turn 40, I realize that what she is teaching me now is that I still have time to accomplish everything and anything I wish.
