Tall Poppy Diaries

  Farewell To Julia Child

I was sad to learn of the passing of an exceptional Tall Poppy--Julia Child. The title link above takes you to a story that chronicles her life. Julia Child was known to be a gentle spirit who seemed totally lacking pretention and yet did what she wanted the way she wanted to do it whether others thought it was the "right" way or not...and millions loved her for it. Now THAT'S a diplomat!

Julia was also a late-bloomer who didn't discover her talent in the kitchen until her 30's and was in her 50's when she first found professional culinary success. You also gotta' love a woman who can bunk all of the "rules" and fads regarding so-called "healthy" eating AND live to be 91!
