Thank you, Julia, for all you did and gave. I know a lot of LJ cooking communities (LJ Gourmet and others) have posters suggesting that they make a nice dish this weekend in her memory, and I think I'm going to try. At the very least, I'll buy one of her cookbooks.
I was pleased to read that Child's kitchen has been preserved as an exhibit in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. Good for them.
Bon appetit, bon voyage, and bonne nuit, old friend.
