In Julia's Kitchen: Practical & Convivial Kitchen Design Inspired by Julia Child

Bon appetit! was Julia’s dictum, both on her TV shows and in her home kitchen. Pamela Heyne AIA is the author of In Julia’s Kitchen, and in this program she will share with us her 1989 interview with Julia Child about kitchen design, entertaining and US culture. Pamela will show that Julia’s ideas are relevant today, and just might help us cook more, snack less, and make the family meal a bit easier.
