Julia Child, cookbook author and television chef (among other things) passed away.
She loved food and loved the camaraderie that came with it. "Dining with one's friends and beloved family is certainly one of life's primal and most innocent delights, one that is both soul-satisfying and eternal," she said in the introduction to her seventh book, "The Way to Cook." "In spite of food fads, fitness programs, and health concerns, we must never lose sight of a beautifully conceived meal."
"You have to eat to cook. You can't be a good cook and be a noneater. I think eating is the secret to good cooking."
