I love Julia Child’s story. It’s about passion, finding your dream, loving life, tragedy and success.
If you haven’t already taken two hours to watch the movie Julie & Julia—do it. Amy Adams and Meryl Streep do a fabulous job of telling two stories that intertwine, yet happen in separate decades.
Julie is a lacking passion in her job, dreams of being a writer (but doubts her abilities) and then starts a blog where she cooks her way through each of the recipes in Julia Child’s first cookbook. You can guess where this leads…
Julia’s story is a simple, yet entertaining, biography of Julia Child’s life. Watch it.
Anyway, I love Julia Child’s simple, quick wit, and I adore her quotes.
Here are Julia Child’s 7 best quotes:
“You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces—just good food from fresh ingredients.”
“Everything in moderation…including moderation.”
“Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”
“Life itself is the proper binge.”
“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.”
“If you’re afraid of butter, use cream.”
“…small helpings, no seconds, no snacking, and a little bit of everything.”
