    "The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook."
    "Never use water unless you have to! I'm going to use vermouth!"

    Been hearing this for years in culinary circles. Given the job her husband had, not a big surprise. And being the hostess with the mostest is definitely spy-grade stuff.

    Edit: And actually, she was a civilian employee of the OSS, which has been known for years. Much ado about nothing.

    Hey, I bet Julia could get better secrets with her cooking than Mata Hari could get with, well, you know.

    Julia Child should always remain the example against which all other popular chefs are measured.

    Julia Child a secret agent.

    Chuck Barris a double-secret CIA spy?

    Who's next?

    No damn wonder she would always tell you to use .007 pounds of salt in everything she made.

    And I always thought I was so special when she said "This recipe is for your eyes only."

    When she meant a secret ingredient, she meant it, baby.
