A look back: Julia Child’s letters to Allen Brothers

Allen Brothers USDA Prime steaks have attracted lots of celebrity clients since the company launched in 1893. One of the most illustrious? None other than Julia Child. Allen Brothers president Todd Hatoff fondly remembers the days when he used to ship boxes of steaks to the late, great Child:
“She was a wonderful lady. She mail-ordered steaks from us, mostly Prime strips and ribeyes. She liked a lot of fat, the most fat you could get.” Child liked to correspond by mail. “She wrote us letters,” Hatoff recalls.
