Julia Child’s Boeuf Bourguignon | Veganized

I first fell in love with cooking through the famous French chef Julia Child. She had such an incredible way about her when it came to her love of cooking, and finding her passion in making French cooking accessible for Americans. I watched Julia and Julia, read books about her, watched her hilarious cooking show: The French Chef, and bought every cookbook of hers I could find. When I began transitioning into becoming vegetarian, I still appreciated her but knew that I may never be able to continue cooking with her and creating her recipes.

Recently, I’ve been trying to veganize just about everything… from chicken noodle soup to California sushi rolls. I knew the ultimate vegan challenge would be to take on any of Julia Child’s recipes, specifically her famous Boeuf Bourguignon. After some research, I came up with the perfect game plan on how I was going to tackle this flavorful, butter filled recipe making it 100% vegan, and I think I did it!

My Inspiration: The Lovely Julia Child

About four years ago, the movie Julie & Julia came out, and after seeing it, I fell even more in love with the amazing Julia Child. I had heard of her before seeing this movie, but got to know her even more in this incredible movie. Also, this movie is my “life movie” meaning, if you want to get to know me….watch this movie, it is everything I love. 

What I love about Julia is her pure love in cooking, and eating. She truly loved not only to cook, but also eat. I also love how her living in France influenced her life in such a positive way. Julia was an American icon in both cooking, and pure entertainment. She gave so much French culture to America, and I admire her so much for that.
