Weekend at the Museum – Julia Child’s Kitchen at the Smithsonian


Julia Child (1912-2004) was one of America’s favorite chefs. She introduced French cooking to main stream American dining. When Julia moved to California in 2001, she donated her home kitchen from Cambridge, MA to the museum. The kitchen exhibit includes everything… the cabinets, appliances, cookbooks, kitchen table and hundreds of utensils. The exhibit gives viewers an inside look at the working kitchen of one of the most well-known cooks of our time.

The physical exhibit is on-going at the museum. However, for those who can not see it in person, the Smithsonian has created an online experience as well. The online exhibit has photos, a blog with a recipe of the week, news about the kitchen and videos of Julia sharing her “kitchen wisdom.”
