Just a little nosh here in tribute…

Julia Child is still in the media. Food Network is airing an episode on our famous former Pasadena party girl (ok, I’m reaching over the Pasadena line for this one) on their show Chefography. She was quite the little tart as a girl and couldn’t be missed at 6 foot 2–no wonder she was such a hoot to watch.

Thankfully she joined the Office of Strategic Services married Paul Child, a cartographer and artistic renaissance man who’d lived around the world and introduced her to French food. Not a natural born chef, she struggled to figure out how to even get a meal on the table. Fittingly, her last meal is reported by Wikipedia to have been French Onion Soup.  Bon apetit!
