Julia Child Kitchen: Now Veg

With the recent release of the film Julie / Julia, there’s been much talk of Julia Child as of late; Child’s book Mastering the Art of French Cooking even topped the New York Times Best Seller List48 years after it was first published. Even SuperVegan had a brush with Julia recently; when our very own Andrea Wachner was inspired to veganize a recipe from Le Cordon Bleu Cookbook after viewing the film.

And now, in a rather fitting full circle (well, at least according to our narrative) we come to find out that Lisa Landsverk, the new owner of Julia Child’s Cambridge home, is not only vegetarian but an animal rights activist too.

In this Boston Globe piece Ms. Landsverk is profiled and takes to the task of veganizing one of Ms. Child’s recipes.

Bon Appetit indeed!

    There’s no need to ‘veganize’ a recipe that is already good enough. Why is someone’s food preference good or bad in the ownership of someone’s home?

    You sound utterly pompous for someone who doesn’t even know how to spell bon appetit.

    Now this is a great “sign of the times”! :)

    And Kitty… You ask: “Why is someone’s food preference good or bad in the ownership of someone’s home?” Well because it’s just not a “preference” like a blue car instead of a red one… Or a split level instead of a Colonial home. It’s about treating sentient beings as “property”. It’s about ignoring the rights of innocence because they cannot fight against their oppressors. It’s about justice.

    Killing animals for “food” is totally unnecessary. We can thrive on a plant based diet. Therefore, doing so is done for “pleasure” only. Are you saying we should view frivolous and cruel acts as socially acceptable? It is evolving a new ethic… based on justice. Surely killing 53 billion mammals a year for “pleasure” cannot possibly be considered justifiable?

    Yo, Kitty. Not sure how you stumbled upon SV, but you do realize that this a Vegan site right? So. Like. Y’know. The stuff I (we) cover tends to be Vegan-related. I thought this was interesting, so, I posted about it – that’s what we do here.

    Me? I choose to eschew animal products so, y’know ‘veganizing’ is what I have to do to recipes that are, y’know, not vegan.

    And please do not mistake my bad spelling for pomposity – I’ve just always sucked at it. Nevertheless thanks for heads up on the spelling error. I’m happy to report that I’ve changed it!

    So. Hopefully. No Mur Spehling Errurs!

    It’s “Julia Child” not “Childs.”
