Julia Child’s 100th Birthday

Born 100 years ago today, Julia Child revolutionized cooking in America when her book Mastering the Art of French Cooking was published in 1961.The Dining & Wine section of today’s New York Times has some wonderful tributes to her, including one from her friend and colleague Jacques Pepin, and food writer Julia Moskin. Don’t miss her fabulous-sounding recipe for floating island with apricot creme anglaise! She became a TV icon with her cooking show The French Chef, and inspired the 2009 film Julie & Julia. See the EPL catalog for the many books by and about her.  Bon appetit!
