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!

This week was an exciting moment in the food blogging world as the movie Julie & Julia opened. (here in Australia we’ve still got a couple of months to wait though … and my fingers are tapping the kitchen table impatiently). The movie features two stories: the memoirs of Julia Child and the story of food blogger Julie Powell cooking her way through Julia’s recipes. One of the things I’m delighted about with the movie is that it features some of my French (classic) favourites. They’ve never gone out of style with me. They are the dishes I taught myself as a teenager and have been cooking ever since. Every winter since I first cooked this recipe, I’ve warmed family and friends with Boeuf Bourguignon. Here’s my adaptation using mustard, not flour, for thickening. Where possible, for added depth of flavour, I prepare a day ahead of eating, and start preparations with the marinade the day before that. Read more on Becca’s blog.
