    Julia Child 100 birthday

    Julia would have been 100 today so in her honor this post.
    Harvard has a collection of Paul Child photos that number in over 1034 with many open new photo files so i bring you what i liked from them.
    Paul Child was the still photographer for the French Chef show and in there travels both were in the OSS.

    I like this photo there making caramel cages.

    Is that a Deba???

    Steeley, these pics are a home run. Maybe I just love Julia, but these are inspiring.

    I find it funny looking at these pics.. The movie "Julia and me", the make a point to show the counters and ovens and how tall they are.
