Photos of Julia

The Harvard Coop has a wonderful collection of photos taken by Paul Child of his wife, Julia. They are really fantastic candids of Julia in her daily life and behind the scenes at The French Chef. The prices for prints start at just $15 (or $13.50 if you're a Harvard Coop member), and would be such a wonderful addition to a kitchen.

You can view the full collection and place your order here, these are a few of my favorites (it was almost impossible to choose just a few to share because I find them all so incredibly charming):

at the Cordon Bleu in 1950

kneading dough in 1952

in Alsace in 1955

making a cheese soufflé in 1965

behind the scenes of The French Chef in 1963
