TV chef and author Julia Child adapted complex French cooking for everyday Americans, with her groundbreaking cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
Most of Child’s kitchen was transported to the Smithsonian museum, where you can see it (free of clutter, though!) today. One thing that didn’t make the trip was Child’s flooring, a resistant linoleum that was more comfortable to stand on—but that was adhered with asbestos-containing glue. Instead, its pattern was photographed and applied to a paper floor at the museum.
