The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts
Julia Child made cooking fun. She inspired millions to take to the kitchen and appreciate the pleasures of making and eating good food. In 1995, Julia had the foresight to establish The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts to further her far-reaching impact as a teacher and mentor after her death. Since 2004, the Foundation, through grants made to other non-profit organizations and by presenting the Julia Child Award, continues Julia’s legacy, educating and encouraging others to live well through the joys of cooking, eating and drinking well.

From her christening photo to leaning out the window of her Paris kitchen in 1949 on the cusp of classes at Le Cordon Bleu – with Ceylon and her wedding in between – here’s an intimate look at young Julia before she launched her meaningful career. The Foundation is grateful to Julia’s family for sharing these special images.
