12 Quotes
I was 32 when I started cooking; up until then, I just ate.
It’s all theory until you see for yourself whether or not something works.
Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.
I was going to be a great woman novelist. Then the war came along and I think it’s hard for young people today, don’t you, to realize that when World War II happened we were dying to go and help our country.
People who love to eat are always the best people.
The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.
Just speak very loudly and quickly, and state your position with utter conviction, as the French do, and you’ll have a marvelous time!
A party without cake is really just a meeting.
The measure of achievement is not winning awards. It’s doing something that you appreciate, something you believe is worthwhile.
The secret of a happy marriage is finding the right person. You know they’re right if you love to be with them all of the time.
The main thing is to have a gutsy approach and use your head.
Every woman should have a blowtorch.
Child was an American chef, author, and television personality. She is recognized for bringing French cuisine to the American public with her debut cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
