Kitchen Think: Happy Birthday, Julia!


Happy Birthday, Julia, you’ve been auto-tuned.

Today would have been iconic chef and television personality Julia Child’s 100th birthday. In celebration, PBS Digital Studios made a Julia Child auto-tune video.

This video includes some of my favorite (and oh-so-true) Julia-isms like, “You need some fat in your diet or your body can’t process your vitamins,” and “Freshness is essential, that makes all the difference.”

But my favorite Julia-ism is something that I believe touches us all: “I like to smell something cooking, makes me feel at home.”

I met Julia only once, but from everything I’ve read, she loved to have fun and had a great sense of humor. I think she would have thought this video was a kick.
