What I found on Julia Child’s Kitchen Bookshelves

Summer 2009 -Julia's refence books

The thing I most wanted to see when we visited the Smithsonian last summer (besides Lincoln’s top hat) was Julia Child’s kitchen so that I could get a look at what she had on her bookshelf – and I love that, in addition to all of her own cookbooks and some notable others, she had one on Greek Mythology, Barlett’s Familiar Quotations, a dictionary, and How to Clean Everything.  Proof that she did pretty much everything in her kitchen.  There was a whole shelf of phonebooks and Yellow Pages, too – remember those?
