Julia Child: bon appétit
Julia Child, the celebrated cook, author and television personality who elevated the nation’s culinary standards, died in her sleep Thursday night in her Santa Barbara, Calif, home. She was 91. As America’s gastronomic guru, she had no peer. She taught us to relish food and wine as a way of appreciating life’s bounty. From this brave new world of food, there is no turning back.
She was truly a pioneer, and she will be missed.
