Julia Child was an inspiration to the world in many ways. She most definitely has had a major influence on me and my career, plus we also have a lot in common. She and I are most definitely kindred spirits.
We all know about Julia Child’s culinary influences on the world, but I bet a lot of people don’t know how she also liked to offer words of wisdom through her fun little quips. She was always coming up with something fun and witty. “Julia herself loved to quip. She was even known to quote herself, sometimes changing her words just enough to leave the ‘original’ to each person’s memory”.
Over the holidays, I bought myself a cute little book called “People Who Love to Eat Are Always the Best People” by Julia Child. I could not agree with this statement more.
None of us just wakes up one day as a great cook or a great chef. It takes years and years of practice and hard work. It takes getting your hands dirty and doing the work. It takes trial and error. It takes just getting in there and doing it.
Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. Mistakes are part of the process. You have to learn to fail before you can learn to succeed.
Go in there and give them all you’ve got. Go in there and say “what the hell”.
Hope you all have a great day. Stay safe and stay well. ‘Til next time.
