3 Lessons from Julia Child

The original food influencer? None other than Julia Child. Between hosting one of the most long-running cooking TV shows (really, we wouldn’t have food TV without her) to bringing French cooking to the mainstream American kitchen, Julia Child made an impact.

Julia Child’s influence is back in a big way with HBO’s new show Julia, reinvigorating fan’s love for her and introducing a new generation to Julia Child’s work.

Smidgen host and owner of Red Stick Spice Company Anne Milneck brings us three lessons everyone can take from Julia Child. If you want to bring some flair to your dinners or want to dive into cooking with wine—this is the Smidgen episode for you.

Please note: You will most likely clamor to purchase a blow torch after listening. You’ve been advised.
