Julia Child 100

Julia Child would have turned 100 this August, and there are many organizations doing many terrific things to celebrate her life and work.

You can follow the JC100 phenomenon on both Facebook and Twitter, where recipes and events are being posted.

You can buy Mastering the Art of French Cooking as an e-book or in print.

Most especially, you can cook your way through Julia’s best recipes.  Not all 3700. Not even all of them from Julie and Julia, but just pick some of your favorites.  Many cooks and chefs are publishing “simplified recipes” that make it much easier to replicate Julia’s art, like this one for Coq au Vin.

Lastly, if you are really a fan, see if there are things going on in your community.  Pasadena, Julia’s birthplace, will be celebrating with birthday parties this August.
