Julia Child's 100th Birthday
Today would have been television cook and cookbook author Julia Child's 100th birthday. There were lots of great stories about her career in the media lately. And, a new biography about Julia was recently published.
What I am beginning to look at is how Julia was covered by the food editors in the women's sections of newspapers at the beginning of her career. It is unlikely that her career would have taken off like it did if not for favorable coverage in the women's pages.
