Celebrating Julia Child’s 100th birthday

In honour of what would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday on August 15th, Alfred A. Knopf, Julia’s longtime book publisher, is celebrating Julia and her extraordinary legacy of culinary teachings. The publisher is urging people to share Julia Child’s recipes, photos, memories and stories on various social media sites under the JC100 umbrella.

The publisher released a list of Julia’s 100 most treasured recipes handpicked by a jury of food experts, including Judith Jones, Child’s editor at Knopf; star chefs Thomas Keller, Danny Meyer and Jacques Pepin; and Food 52’s Amanda Hesser.

Look for the JC100 celebration on Facebook at facebook.com/JuliaChild; on Twitter at @JC100; on Pinterest at pinterest.com/knopfbooks/jc100; and on Tumblr at jc100.tumblr.com.

In the coming weeks, I will be posting my own
Julia Child observations, memories and recipes.
