Every Woman Should Have A Blowtorch
This is supposed to be a quote from none other than the famous television chef Julia Child. But, she didn’t say it. Or did she?
The quote, which became the title of a Julia Child cookbook was uttered by Chef Mary Bergin on an episode of Julia Child’s television show on PBS.
Here is the exchange as it happened. To whom do we attribute the quote? You decide ….
Chef Julia Child: “Oh Mary, I think everyone should have a blow torch in the kitchen.”
Chef Mary Bergin: “No Julia, every WOMAN should have a blow-torch in the kitchen!”
Nevertheless, the quote by Chef Bergin became the official title of Julia’s cookbook. Now you know. Thanks for visiting.
