I recently finished My Live in France by Julia Child and her nephew Alex Prud’homme. It is not a great work of literature but it is great fun. Especially for someone like me who lived abroad for many years. For almost two decades I lived a few miles from the French border and enjoyed many fun and fabulous meals in little country restaurants and inns.
The food I found in bistros and cafés in France, in Switzerland and around the world inspired me. The chefs in these cozy little spots became my teachers, spurring me on to chop, stir, baste, bake and create.
In the closing pages of her book, Julia offers a bit of advice. I couldn’t agree more!
This is my invariable advice to people: Learn to cook – try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun! Julia Child
