That time I went to Julia Child’s kitchen!


Julia Childs kitchen at the Smithsonian

Grab A Bite With Julia Child!

She may no longer be with us, but Julia Child is still entertaining us! Julia cooked in this kitchen….and you can see it up close! It’s time for a tasty treat for foodies!

Washington DC Lincoln memorial

Welcome to Washington DC, the nation’s capital and a great place to see our country’s history up close…

John Rieber The White House

It’s safe to say that The White House is one of the world’s “most selfied” buildings…and I am guilty as charged, but there are many other iconic buildings you can capture yourself in front of as well!

US Capital Washington DC

Here is the “currently begin refurbished” Capital building, the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial…

Washington Monument

Lincoln Memorial

One goofball standing next to me said “I thought it would be bigger!” Um, it looks plenty big enough to me…

The Lincoln Memorial Washington DC

All of these are inspiring to see up close, but some of the city’s most memorable sights take place indoors…

  1. How sweet is this? Love the Julia Child legacy. Also, D.C. is one of my favorite places! I’d love to return.


  2. So great to see a legend recognized.

    I also can’t think of Julia Child without the Dan Aykroyd skit.


  3. I had no idea Julia Child’s kitchen is in the Smithsonian! That makes me happy, like knowing Mr. Rogers sweater is there, too. True Americana. The first time I visited the Air and Space Museum was right after the astronauts had landed on the moon. The moon rock was there, and people could touch it. It looked like a lump of coal and was much bigger than a golf ball. Very cool. Fast forward 50 years. I went there with my children and grandchildren, and I couldn’t wait to show them the moon rock. Shock! Allowing people to touch it for 50 years turned the moon rock into a thin sliver. I now have great appreciation and respect for not touching. Great post, John. The Smithsonian is a treasure.


  4. I haven’t been to DC for a decade or so. Looks like a blast!

  5. I recently read a bio of her, she was such a fascinating eccentric


  6. I enjoyed that post, John. What a great idea to install Julia’s original kitchen in the museum. She is an American icon indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.
