Words of Wisdom from Julia Child – Part 1

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”.

Julia Child quote: People who love to eat are always the best people.

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.

Go in there and give them all you’ve got. Go in there and say “what the hell”.

  1. Julia Child was great! She’s an inspiration to those who want to learn to cook, but are a bit reluctant. I like her quotes. My Mom sometimes says “I just don’t get people who don’t like to eat”. 🙂
