Happy 100th Birthday Julia Child!


In appreciation of great baking and cuisine art, we would like to celebrate what would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday. Julia made cooking and baking accessible to all, and was a wonderful pioneer in familiarizing Americans with international cooking. She has inspired many a chef, and will forever be remembered as the darling of televised cooking. Happy birthday Julia!

See this great infographic by PBS below with various facts about Julia. We’re blown away by this one: “While filming the Baking With Julia series, she used a whooping 753 pounds of butter!” WOW! We wonder how she would have liked Chilean Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Feeling inspired? Check out some of our baking tips and dessert recipes.
