Julia Child in her kitchen( Los Angeles Times )
Julia Child does cook for herself, though not as often as she used to; the kitchen in her Montecito home is tiny. Shown here in a 2002 file photo, she was more likely to be giving a phone interview or thinking about her next book. This 2006 piece relived Julia's life in France -- and showed you how you could do the same.
