|Julia and Paul Child|
In the 10 years that The French Chef aired, Julia’s subtext was not out of sync with the era’s counterculture or its overt message of psychosexual liberation. Julia asked viewers to loosen up, get physical, not with controlled substances but with food, not through a glass darkly but at table, with delight. Hers was a civilized sensuality, the integration of the senses that she’d learned in France. This is why her following was legion—Julia’s appetite appealed to young and old alike.
She was a very interesting woman who contributed to our culture in a powerful way! If you haven't seen or read Julie and Julia you should investigate Julia's life. She was a firecracker!
