When Julia Child moved back to her home state of California in 2001, she donated the kitchen from her Cambridge, Massachusetts, home to the Museum. Bon Appétit! Julia Child’s Kitchen at the Smithsonian, an ongoing exhibitio, features the actual kitchen, including the cabinets, appliances, cookbooks, kitchen table, and hundreds of utensils and gadgets. The exhibition gives visitors a peek into the working kitchen of one of the world’s best-known cooks, and explores how her influence as an author and host of several television series changed the way America cooks.

The National Museum of American History (NMAH), administered by the Smithsonian Institute, collects, preserves and displays American heritage in the areas of social, political, cultural, scientific and military history. The museum, which first opened in 1964 as the Museum of History and Technology, is located on the National Mall in one of the last structures designed by McKim, Mead & White. It was renamed in 1980, and closed for a 2-year, million renovation by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP from 2006 to 2008.

The Smithsonian Institution, an educational and research institute and associated museum complex, administered and funded by the government of the United States and by funds from its endowment, contributions, and profits from its shops and its magazines, was established in 1846. Although concentrated in Washington DC, its collection of over 136 million items is spread through 19 museums, a zoo, and nine research centers from New York to Panama.

Black Books: Episode 1: Cooking the Books

Let go once in a while, you are a loose Lily floating down an amber river

Whenever you’re in a tight spot, try to imagine yourself marooned on a beautiful desert island’.

When you rest, you are a king surveying your estate. Look at the woodland, the peacocks on the lawn. Be the king of your own calm kingdom

If you want to feel calm, eat more raw fruit and vegetables, yoghurt, milk and seeds.

When you’re feeling under pressure, do something different. Roll up your sleeves, or eat an orange.

Be on the look out for things that make you laugh. If you see nothing worth laughing at, pretend you see it, then laugh.

Add a dab of lavender to milk; leave town with an orange, and pretend you’re laughing at it.
