The (French) Kitchen's Closed ...

Julia Child passed on in her sleep last night, according to her publisher (here's a link to the story on MSNBC). She was 91.

I'd love to say "I met her once ..." and relate a touching, personal story but that's simply not the case. I, like most of the rest of the food-loving world, knew her only from afar: her cookbooks, TV programs, guest appearances on Emeril Live, and so forth. So, I'll forego a long winded eulogy and simply say,

"God bless, Julia ... you will be missed."
