Restaurants Across U.S. Celebrate Julia Child on August 15

On August 15, a lot of kitchens will be like Julia's
Did you know that Julia Child's 100th birthday is on August 15? You can celebrate by watching Julie & Julia (or, by going through the archives of the funny blog Lawrence, Julie and Julia), or you can go out to dinner. We know which option we're going with. A-list restaurants throughout the country are taking part in a special celebration dubbed Julia Child Restaurant Week, which will feature special menus from August 7 up until JC's birthday on the 15. Top chefs like Alice Waters (Berkeley, CA), Emeril Lagasse, Traci Des Jardins (San Francisco), Michel Richard (Washington DC), Michael White (NYC) and Barbara Lynch (Boston) will be taking part in the par-tay by preparing special menus inspired by Childs' cuisine. In fact, restaurants in 50 cities ranging across 28 states will be creating special birthday menus.

All of this was put together by Alfred A. Knopf, who is releasing the new biography Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child on August 15. To get a full list of the participating restaurants that will take part in the JC100 Celebration, you can check out this website.
