Rest in peace, Julia Child

Bloomberg (and others): Julia Child, TV’s Gourmet ‘French Chef’ of ’60s, Dies. Thanks, Julia, for teaching us all that it was OK to have fun while cooking insanely complex and luxurious dishes—and to drink wine while doing it.

Update: Beautiful reaction from Julie Powell: “… she created feisty, buttery, adventurous cooks, always diving in to the next possible disaster, because goddammit, if Julia did it, so could we.”
