DEARBORN, Mich. — French Chef Julia Child brings her culinary expertise to an exhibit called “Julia Child: A Recipe for Life” to the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich., is now open to the public until September 10. Her sense of curiosity drove her to make delicious food and made her a culinary pioneer.
This exhibit takes you through the years of her life; her marriage to Paul Child, and her career as a cooking teacher, author of her own cookbooks and as a television personality.
Julia was born on August 15, 1912 in Pasadena, Calif. She met Paul, who is 10 years her senior, while stationed in Ceylon in 1944. Initially there were not attracted to each other, but her sense of humor intrigued Paul. Julia joined the OSS (Office of Strategic Service) where she became interested in international culture and cuisine.
Julia began her culinary training at the Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, which is the largest culinary school in the world. One of her favorite quotes was “the only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook.”
Paul, unfortunately, died in 1994. Julia died of kidney failure on August 13, 2004 in Montecito, Calif. just two days before her 92nd birthday.
Stop by the Henry Ford Museum and smell her cooking, along with watching her on TV shows during the exhibit and checking out her cookbooks. The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation is located at 20900 Oakwood Blvd., Dearborn, MI.
Tickets for “Julia Child: A Recipe for Life” is free as a member, $35.00 for general admission, $31.50 for Seniors. The museum is open daily 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
