I just finished reading Julia Child's book My Life in France, and I am inspired by so many aspects of her life. In this book, Julia Child provides a vivid historical perspective of both France and America during the 1950s through intelligent commentary on culture, politics and of course, food. Fun, shocking at times, but always sharp and interesting, it is truly a beautiful chronicle of how Julia celebrated life.
So in the spirit of Julia Child's celebration for life, I will be recognizing a couple of soul food sisters over this week, who have inspired me to cook and live better along the way. In addition to a short profile, I will be attaching a recipe or ingredient to match each personality. I hope you enjoy the upcoming stories and recipes over this week.
