Julia Child Quotes To Help Sip and Savor Your Holiday Meal

Julia Child

Julia Child made bon appétit an American household word

Bon Appétit. So oh la la French. I grew up saying bon appétit, (in oh la la America) before every dinner.

Julia Child changed the way America views the eating process. She brought her touch to how to eat like the French, how to enjoy a meal like the French and of course, how to cook like the French.

Je vous souhaite un Joyeux Noël! I wish you a joyful holiday. May it be a happy one with good food around the table and shared with special friends and family.

As a tribute to one of my food idols, here are some of Julia Child’s mantras!

Julia Child quotes about eating (in bold!)

Dining with one’s friends and beloved family is certainly one of life’s primal and most innocent delights, one that is both soul-satisfying and eternal.


Day 1420: Bass Hassan's Christmas dinner

It’s so beautifully arranged on a plate-you know someone’s fingers have been all over it.

Get your fingers all over your cooking masterpieces!


You never forget a beautiful thing that you have made, (Chef Bugnard) said. Even after you eat it, it stays with you-always.

Make something extra special this holiday-go overboard, why not?

Just like becoming an expert in wine–you learn by drinking it, the best you can afford–you learn about great food by finding the best there is, whether simply or luxurious.

Choose a bottle to complement your holiday meal!

If you’re afraid of butter, just use cream.

Fat tastes good. This holiday season-cream or butter it=in moderation.

wisdom from Julia Child

and finally,

…nothing is too much trouble if it turns out the way it should.

Make this holiday season extra special, with food and with those you are with. Wishing you a happy and healthy holiday!
