Julia Child was born August 15, 1912 and she only recently passed away last year. She was in her nineties, yet much of America was still familiar with the famous chef. She was born in Pasadena, California, but would travel to many parts of the world including France where she mastered French cooking.
After graduating college, Julia worked as a copywriter but was soon called to a higher purpose. After the beginning of the war, she wanted to help. After being rejected by the Navy for being too tall, she found her place with the Office of Strategic Services. Soon she would find herself in France where she discovered her love for French cooking.
While in France, Julia studied French Cooking at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu. She then became involved with the creation of a French cookbook aimed at an American audience. It was Julia's job to make the book more American friendly. Soon, she would find that Americans were very eager to learn about Julia's love for French cooking.
Julia Child went on to produce a number of cooking shows and cookbooks. In 1963, The French Chef aired and was an immediate success. The show won both a Peabody award and Emmy awards.
Today, her kitchen is located at the Smithsonian Museum. Her house was donated to the college where she graduated, Smith College, before she moved into a retirement home in 2001. She died peacefully at the age of 91 but not before inspiring everyone who had a passion for French cooking.
