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.

The Foundation supports the Oxford Symposium on Food & Cookery with a grant that underwrites student attendance to their annual international culinary conference held at St. Catherine’s College at Oxford. The conference attracts a wide range of scholar applicants from undergraduates through post-doctoral fellows. In the past, attendees have traveled from universities around the world for this annual, three-day event devoted to the study and discussion of food.

The photo included here shows panelists from last year’s symposium: Aylin Oney Tan, a journalist from Istanbul; Anne Ubancic, a professor at the University of Toronto; and Guilia Nicolini, a student studying Japanese and sociology at the University of Cambridge and one of the students that benefitted from the Foundation’s support.
