Pamela Heyne will give a slide talk Dec. 1 at 5:30 at the Saint Michaels Library. The talk will revolve around her new book, In Julia’s Kitchen, Practical and Convivial Kitchen Design Inspired by Julia Child. Books will be available for purchase after the talk (and sold by the News Center). Since Julia Child emphasized the joy of sharing the wonderful food she prepared, Pamela feels we need to replicate some of that fun with wine and Julia Child’s recipe brownies.
Pamela, the only architect who ever interviewed Julia, will show how meaningful Julia Child’s ideas are today, from the standpoint of design as well as physical health and emotional well being. Some recent local designs are in the book, such as the Cottingham Farm kitchen and gallery.
Last month Pamela had a launch of the book in the Boston area at the Harvard Book Store and other venues. She writes a column for the Talbot Spy, “Design for You,” and has a studio in Saint Michaels, Heyne Design.
