Tomorrow marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of my culinary idol, Julia Child.
Perhaps my favorite quote describes my relationship with Julia -- I found it on Brainy Quotes.
Instead of drooling, oohing, etc., I want to share something I wrote for the Sarasota Herald-Tribune food section in 2004 -- shortly after Julia died, and as a hurricane was tearing into the area. I wrote this before Julia and Julia -- and I wrote it for my Julia.
This explains my love of Julia Child, and why today I celebrate her here, on Twitter, and in my life.
Merci Beaucoup, Julia. Toujours...bon appetite!
