What Would Julia Child Say: Her 10 Most Hilarious Quotes


The other day I was standing in the kitchen over a pot of boiling pasta when my friends (over for a Sunday afternoon of food and wine) starting reminiscing on Julia Child. “I thought she was so boring as a kid, but now that I’m older, I adore her reruns,” said one of my friends. I chuckled, because that was exactly my own experience. For whatever reason, I didn’t appreciate Julia as a child. But now that I’m grown, with a kitchen of my own, I cherish her no-nonsense approach to life and cooking. This year marks Julia’s 100th birthday, it was celebrated a few weeks back by PBS. To keep that celebration strong, here are 10 absolutely hysterical quotes that are classically Julia Child.
