Oh, Julia

Filed under: Food — Twistie @ 12:22 pm

I’ve mentioned before how much I’ve always loved Julia Child. From early childhood she shaped my thoughts and beliefs about food, cooking, and simply existing in a profound way. Do I agree with everything she ever said? Of course not. I don’t agree with everything Mr. Twistie says, either. I do, however, admire greatly the way she approached life and good food, with gusto and vigor.

I’m off shortly to finally take in a matinee of Julie and Julia, and fully intend to enjoy the hell out of watching Meryl Streep play Julia. But before I go, I thought I’d share a few clips of the lady herself with you all.

Julia burns food, just to prove a point about chemistry:

Bon Appetit!


  1. Oh, I very much suggest you don’t do that.

  2. Why on earth would I behave respectfully to a troll?

  4. I really really advise against it. Twistie gets paid to flap her yak and so do I, it’s the point of this site. I strongly invite you to find someplace else to go and maybe search the site to see our policy on trolling.
