Julia Child’s Paris Apartment

Follow "The French Chef’s" footsteps in the charming Left Bank neighborhood in which she lived.

Julia Child and husband Paul lived on the top two floors of 81 Rue de l’Université, or as Julia used to refer to it “Roo de Loo” in the 7th Arrondissement. It was in that kitchen that she practiced dishes she learned during her studies at Le Cordon Bleu and nurtured a deep connection to classical French cuisine. After graduating from the institution she would later start her own cooking school, L’Ecole des Trois Gourmandes, with friends Simone (Simca) Beck and Louisette Bertholle and together begin working on their cookbook that would become the groundbreaking “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”. Stroll down the boulevard and the streets she and Paul walked, visit the Rue Cler where Julia shopped for meats, cheese and produce. Perhaps also pay your respects by leaving a stick of butter at this legend’s former doorstep or by simply wishing her, bon appétit.
