“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.”
“One of the secrets, and pleasures, of cooking is to learn to correct something if it goes awry; and one of the lessons is to grin and bear it if it cannot be fixed.”
“…no one is born a great cook, one learns by doing.”
Ooh, Julia…on what would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday it seemed like a good idea to celebrate with some of her wise words on life, love and, of course, cooking.
Today we honour Julia’s wit, wisdom and joie de vivre.
So, Julia — wherever you are — happy birthday and bon appetit!
“Everything in moderation… including moderation.”
“Life itself is the proper binge.”
“You’ll never know everything about anything, especially something you love.”
“Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”
“Cooking is like love; it should be entered into with abandon or not at all.”
“This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook- try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun!”
– Julia Child –
