“Personally, I don’t think pure vegetarianism is a healthy lifestyle. I’ve often wondered to myself: Does a vegetarian look forward to dinner, ever?” – Julia Child
Julia Child never understood Vegans or Vegetarians and she made no bones about it.
I would watch her show often on PBS and never thought a French food diet would be for me. She only cooked meat based dishes and made it a point to show her disdain for vegetarians and vegans.
Whenever I watched Julia Child on PBS, I often though I could cook like her. She was talented in many aspects of cooking, but, she had one monumental gift.
She made it seem like cooking French food was like talking a walk around the Seine!
Fun, glamorous and romantic!
My French cooking attempts, inevitably, ended in ruins.
