We followed Julia’s detailed instructions and reminded ourselves of her masterful teaching style and her enthusiasm for the
tools and techniques of cooking. Along the way we featured specific tools and gadgets in Julia's home kitchen, which has been on view at the museum since 2002,
and, true to her philosophy, we shared our experiences in this space. We invite you to join with us in this celebration of Julia Child's life, work, and
contributions to American culinary history.

Julia Child (1912-2004) introduced French cuisine and cooking techniques to the American mainstream through her cookbooks and television programs.
Note: The museum posted new recipes from Julia's canon each week during August-December 2009. While we've stopped adding new recipes, we hope that you'll still cook, eat, and share your experiences with us on this site. Bon appétit!

Whether you purchase a whole chicken or use pre-cut pieces for Coq au Vin, you should check out Julia’s detailed instructions on disjointing poultry (not for the faint of heart) in Mastering the Art of French Cooking Volume II (pp.312-315). In another example of how she organized her kitchen work spaces, Julia kept her poultry shears, along with other cutting tools, on a pegboard hook near the butcher’s block in her kitchen. She didn’t waste time hunting for a tool in a drawer, but had it right at hand near the surface where it would be used.
This week, education technologist Carrie Kotcho shares her experience with a Julia Child recipe that changed the course of her life.
