Lopaus Point, Maine, 1951

When Julia Child first visited the Child family cabin in Lopaus Point, Maine, her cooking skills were non-existent. She began gradually with KP duties like peeling potatoes and chopping onions. A self-professed “social butterfly,” Julia took flight in that rustic kitchen until she and her sister-in-law Freddie began churning out delicious banquets.
