I'm really hoping I can go to this, because I really adore this woman.
Since I was a young-un, I'd come across Julia Child on PBS every once in a while, and would become entranced everytime by her love of food, the people that surrounded her, and life in general. She has been a great inspiration to many of us, myself included, as to the importance of living life to its fullest and simply enjoying. Which is why it's ironic that because I may be working alot next week, there's a chance I may not be able to make it to what I'm about to tell you about. Well, either way, I hope some of you will be able to go.
As a tribute to everyone's favorite chef, the Pasadena Museum of History, as part of their current exhibit "Orange Blossom Time: The Citrus Heritage of Southern California," will be hosting Julia Child in Orange Grove Pasadena Tuesday, September 27 at 7:30 pm. A panel of chefs from Le Cordon Bleu California School of Culinary Arts in Pasadena will be discussing "how Julia Child changed America's culinary landscape and their own lives" as well as preparing samplings of citrus-themed dishes inspired by the legendary chef including:
-Duck Rillette withTangerine Marmalade on a Wheat Crisp
-Fruit Nut Bread with Candied Grapefruit and Citrus Butter
-California Lemon Crepes
-Tequila Lime Sausage on a Corn Biscuit
-Pork Tenderloin with a Kumquat Glaze on Brioche
-Tangerine and Tarragon Sherbet on an Orange Florentine Cone
-Orange Grande Marnier Bombé
Tickets are $25 for general admission or $20 for museum members and includes tasting, program and exhibition entry. Reservations are recommended. Please call (626) 577-1660, ext. 10 for reservations and more info.
