Happy Birthday Julia!

Julia Child’s 100th Birthday Celebration

Julia Child would have been 100 today. For those of you who have read Minnesota Locavore from the beginning, you know that she holds a special place in my heart. I’ve written final term papers in college about her life and affinity for butter. She’s brought me back to the kitchen to “learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun.”

Today I’ve had fun reading how she’s shaped and inspired other food writers around the web. (Google and the White House even joined in the celebration!) Bon Appetite everyone!

Here are my earlier posts about all things Julia:
