If you did not know chef, author, and probably the earliest television celebrity cook, Julia Child, would have been 100 years old today. Julia was an early supporter of wine and food pairings in her cookbooks. Even if you are "culinary challenged" stop in and grab a bottle of wine for a toast to Julia this evening. Something old world like Burgundy, Bordeaux, or Rioja is probably appropriate.
If you need some inspiration and don't own one of her books, check out this link: http://jc100.tumblr.com/
Or for a list of her Top 100 recipes: http://www.foodrepublic.com/2012/06/01/julia-child’s-100-favorite-recipes-revealed.
And if you need a laugh today, search on YouTube for her appearance on an early David Letterman show. Bon Appétit!
