Just a heads up for all Julia Child lovers in Seattle about a cool event in August to celebrate the release of Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child, a new biography of Julia in which we get to know the real, passionate, quirky woman behind the icon. On August 15, Julia would have been 100 years old. University Book Store in Seattle is hosting a little party to celebrate the woman and the icon. I will be joining some local food writers to share my personal story about meeting Julia (and even show off my own Julia impression) and read from her letters. Also on hand will be some French music and of course, some cake. If you’re in Seattle, bring your favorite dish from Julia to share. Bon appetit!
If you can’t make the potluck here in town, maybe host your own? The book looks like a great read, too.
