Happy Birthday, Julia Child! She would have turned 100 years old today. Thought my poster above would be perfect to honor her big day. Kudos to Julia for introducing French cuisine to American homes and reminding us that almost everything is better with some butter! When Child returned from Paris with her husband Paul, she shared her love of butter and French cooking in the best-selling book Mastering the Art of French Cooking she co-authored with Simone Beck and Louisette Bertholle in 1961. Of course I love the account of her cookbook writing told through a film and a book.
