Happy Birthday, Julia Child!

Julia Child would be 100 years old today.  Although she isn't with us any longer, her verve and her joie de vivre still are, as is her passion for making incredible food accessible to all.

I remember watching Julia as a child.  Way before Food Network, she lit up PBS with kitchen know-how and French dishes that seemed wonderfully exotic to a small-town girl.  She was fun and fearless, not to mention unabashedly tall.  I loved her.

The tributes to Julia are bountiful, but my favorite by far was featured on NPR's The Salt.  It's a mash-up.  With Guns N Roses.  Need I say more?

Watch Julia Child's 100th birthday on PBS. See more from WGBH Specials.

Do you have fond memories of Julia? 

Bon Appetit!
