Blast from the past: Julia Child’s answers to Esquire’s “What I’ve Learned” column. This ran back in 2000, but it’s new to me. Here are a few key quotes:

Moderation. Small helpings. Sample a little bit of everything. These are the secrets of happiness and good health.

Always remember: If you’re alone in the kitchen and you drop the lamb, you can always just pick it up. Who’s going to know?

Right on!
