In the mid 70's, when I was a young bride, I watched Julia Child every afternoon. She didn't have a fancy show, it was also in my house at least, still black and white. But boy did she have character. She was easy to watch and mostly, she was funny. She never made her audience feel incompetent, or that something was too hard to make. She convinced me and many, many other women to get into the kitchen and cook good meals.
One of my favorite things to make still is her quiche. It's not fancy and yet I find it sublime. I remember during the 80's, along came that cute cliche that "real men ate quiche". It was a great statement, but long before that statement, real women ate quiche too and adored it! I still do.
Thanks for the memories and the great food, Ms. Child.
Here's a link to her recipe for quiche. I added 3 roma tomatoes, sliced and salted, then patted dry.
