Happy 100th Birthday Julia Child

by Melody Kettle

"You'd be surprised how very chic a loin of pork can be." -Julia Child

I couldn't agree more!  Today, August 15, 2012, would have marked the 100th Birthday of the original celebrity chef, Julia Child, who passed away in 2004.

As a point of reflection, when Julia Child's first black and white show, The French Chef, debuted in 1962, she was paid $50 per episode. If you're interested in learning more about Julia, pick up Dearie, The Remarkable Life of Julia Child, by Bob Spitz.

Happy Birthday, Julia! Bon Appetit!
