Julia Child: A Recipe for Life explores the key ingredients that made Julia Child the powerful and iconic woman that she was.
Julia’s insatiable curiosity and tenacious spirit drove her to endlessly try, test, prove and communicate how to make delicious food. Learning empowered Julia and in turn, she empowered others, profoundly transforming American cuisine and food culture.
Visitors will journey through Julia’s life, beginning with the moment that ignited her curiosity and passion for French cuisine and inspired her career.
At the heart of the exhibition, Julia’s passion for teaching is explored through her meticulous process of recipe development for Mastering the Art of French Cooking and The French Chef.
Other areas for exploration will be on Julia’s early life, her team members, and her legacy of inspiring people around the world.
