She was a wonderful woman. Full of Joie de vive. She really enjoyed food and was not afraid of it. She always said that Americans’ problem is that they are afraid of food- afraid to cook it, afraid to eat it. Not Julia, the more butter, the better- my kind of person. She was truly an iconoclast- she opened up a whole new world to millions of people who really knew almost nothing about food.
She will be greatly missed- she was warm and down to earth and knowledgeable. SHe’d just pick up something that fell on the lfoor and toss it into the pot without a second’s embarrasment. SHe was one of a knid. Rest in peace Julia, you and Paul are together again.
