We love you Julia Child

julie_julia01We were delighted to hear of Meryl Streep’s triumph at last night’s Golden Globes for her performance as legendary chef Julia Child in the multi award winning “Julie and Julia” directed by Nora Ephron. Julia Child was the American forerunner of Delia, Nigella, Jamie and every other celebrity chef you can think of. She introduced French cooking to middle class American housewives in the 1960s, wrote masses of books and appeared on TV. We love her because when she was asked what was her favourite wine, she simply shrugged her shoulders and replied “gin.”
