Julia Child's Handwritten Recipe

Description:

This handwritten recipe for pain de mie, or French sandwich bread, is from the kitchen of cookbook author and television chef Julia Child.

Trained at the Cordon Bleu cooking school in Paris, Child brought the taste and techniques of traditional French cuisine into American homes. Her first series, The French Chef, premiered on Boston public television in 1962. Over her forty-year career, she produced numerous cookbooks and television shows, including three filmed in her own kitchen in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 2001, Child donated her famous kitchen to the Smithsonian.
