Happy Birthday Julia!

I have two grandmothers to thank for my love of the kitchen. Julia just made all of it more interesting. More practiced. And more fun.

Here's how she was remembered on what would have been her 100th birthday.




You have to start with Julia herself and the chicken sisters:



Then there's also the Natural History Museum exhibit.

Or the Huffington Post with thoughts on food in writing. (I don't agree so much with David Astor. I love many of her recipes. And...you can modify a touch here and there for heaven's sake.)

The LA Times remembrance.

An embedded quiz at the Monitor.

And her bio at Bio.

Happy Birthday Julia. And thank you for being the fearless pioneer you were.

Bon Appetit.
