Jean | Delightful Repast

It was sometime in 2000 or 2001 that I first met Julia Child. Since I was such a great admirer of hers since childhood, when my mother and I watched her on PBS together, you’d think I’d have recorded the exact date of that first, and several subsequent, meetings.

I’ve always been pretty hard to impress, but I was more than a little dazzled by Julia! She was so easy to talk to, though, as she seemed completely unaware of being any more "special" than anyone else in the room. Each time I saw her, even when she was relying on a walker, I was struck by her calm energy, positive attitude and zest for life.

Jean, thank you for sharing that delightful recollection. How fortunate you are to have met and known Julia!

I'm not a bit surprised to hear she didn't think much of her fame, as that seems in keeping with other stories I've heard about her. Thanks for giving us another reason to love her. And thanks for reading.
