Julia Child, the icon of American chefs, co-author of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, died yesterday in Santa Barbara, days before her 92nd birthday. Julia educated and influenced generations of chefs as well as the public, and she will be sorely missed. Her kitchen has even become an exhibit in the Smithsonian. We are fortunate, however. Julia lives on in her books and television programming, so that the next generation can continue to learn from this remarkable woman.
In tribute, I offer a moment of silence on Extended Phenotype: there will be no further posts today.
