Cousin Beth learns to cook from the Master - Chef, that is. Amy Adams, whose Cousin Beth famously called Tara a bitch for not doing the housework for the family menfolk, steps into the kitchen herself in "Julie & Julia", as an aspiring writer who spends a year cooking everything in "Mastering the Art of French Cooking".
And while the connection to the Jossverse might seem stretched, it's worth remembering that Julia Child didn't merely change how America eats, she was an apparently destiny-free woman who set out to do something she loved, and and in doing so created her own destiny. At a time of great pressure in this country for conformity, she was not afraid to go on television and be completely and genuinely an individual. In my mind that puts her in the "Strong Women" lineage.
