15 Aug Happy 100th Birthday Julia Child!
I could come up with a million reasons why I love Julia Child but I’ll give you three for now.
- She had THE FIRST cooking show in 1963 on PBS
- She was a breast cancer survivor and more importantly, lived to the ripe age of 92 despite it
- She started cooking at 32 and jokingly said that before then, she simply ate

Today would have been her 100th birthday and PBS is celebrating big. Their website has full episodes of her tv show, recipes and more. For now I will share the Julia Child remix video below. Yes folks, they have officially autotuned her and it is funny!
I’ll be celebrating this weekend by researching and hopefully putting together one of her recipes and watching Julie & Julia with the family. How will you be celebrating?
“Learn how to cook — try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless and above all have fun.” ~ Julia Child
