Julia Child is a quintessential PBS icon and pioneer who opened up new worlds for a whole generation of Americans, showing them that cooking – even French food – is easy, enjoyable and within reach for all. In honor of what would have been her 100th birthday on August 15, KLRU is planning a 10 day celebration of special tributes, videos, and more to commemorate her life and memory.
Starting today on the KLRU blog, Facebook, and Twitter, we’ll have special Julia posts and we want you to join in the fun – use the #CookForJulia to share your favorite Julia Child recipes, memories, episodes and more with your friends on Facebook or Twitter (and us, too!).
This is a nation-wide celebration that we’re so excited to share with you in the Austin community – check out all the national buzz here and stay in touch because we’ll be sharing a lot of Julia goodies in the next 10 days!
