You may have heard by now that today marks (what would have been) the 100th birthday of the incomparable food icon, Julia Child. Incidentally, today is also a special day for D.M.R. Fine Foods, as we celebrate our 2nd blogiversary! And we're honored to share such a special date with a woman who taught Americans how to cook and embrace food in new and exciting ways.
Like countless others, I possess the treasure, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking, The 40th Anniversary Edition" in my cookbook collection. Of it she says, "it's for both seasoned cooks and beginners who love good food..." And in recent years, I've loved watching the repeats of her original cooking shows where I soak up the wit, humor, personality and, of course, the cooking prowess, of this remarkable food pioneer.
Julia gave us the delightful gift of food--not only French food--but the world of food. And it's a gift that keeps on giving, generation after generation.
PBS has long brought the 'world of Julia' to the American public, and in honor of her 100th birthday, they've amassed a wealth of recipes, video footage, tributes and more! So join in on the fun, make a yummy recipe and celebrate an unforgettable woman--who happened to love food!
Happy Eating and Happy Birthday, Julia Child!
