Julia Child | Cooking With Flair

Hers is a common symptom among hard-working teachers who look forward to recess as eagerly as any of their students. Eventually Julia will go back to the classroom, but this time it will be as a student again. She wants to take pastry lessons from a chef in France. She wants to free herself from a strict work schedule, to have more time to experiment, to travel, to work up new ideas.

One of Julia’s dreams is to inspire her producers to continue cooking lessons on TV but with a series of notable and different cooks. It would continue what she’s started.

“Maybe there will be more professionally trained chefs because of me,” she says. “More and more women are getting into the business. In the United States there seems to be more interest in professional cookery among the young than there is anywhere else in the world.

“Taste is such an important — and neglected — part of living, don’t you agree?”

    I can agree with Julia’s idea of using the dough hook for kneading bread now, but when I was in high school and always baking. I went to my grandmothers one weekend mad at my boyfriend, made up a lot of bread and the kneading and pounding on the bread dough really was a good anger management tool and the bread was a lot better too. Try it sometime; I haven’t made bread in sometime but since I am now unemployed it might relive my stress.
