I think every woman should have a blowtorch. – Julia Child

While I aspire to be a good cook, I do not necessarily want to be a world class french chef. But someone who is fascinating to me is Julia Child. You will see a lot of quotes from her.

I admire her for more than just her cooking talents. She did not learn to cook until she was in her early 30s. She was the only woman in her culinary school class. She hated diet food. She spoke her mind. She loved her husband dearly. And the world recently found out she was a spy.

There was something about her that is very different from the famous chefs of today. She published many books/cookbooks like they all have, but she had a real love of food. Good food that was fresh and not processed.
