"Julia Child, America's French Chef:
An Appetite for Life"




What is it about Julia Child?  She's a cook - not a great scientist or
world leader.  Yet she graced the cover of Times in 1966, and has been
the subject of a musical play and several biographies.  How can we understand how "just cooking" made this women not only an American
icon, but allowed her to profoundly influence what Americans eat and
cook, and think about the purpose of food and of meals?

This talk places Child's fascinating life story within the context of
American women's history.  Her appetite - for food and for life - was inspirational, and fun.  She was an amazing women in her own time,
and left an important legacy by following her passions and being
unapologetically herself.
