CLASS: Julia Child’s Birthday Celebration

Friday, August 15, 2014 at 6:00pm

Chef: Lisa Moore, Nicole Marriner and Marilyn Markel

The Cooking School is celebrating the exuberant and eccentric woman who taught America about French cooking. Julia Child’s voice still rings in our ears today and we remember her as the cult figure of French-American cookery. Julia was born on August 15, 1912 in Pasadena, California, and when her husband Paul was assigned to the U.S. Information Agency at the American Embassy in Paris, Julia enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu Cooking School. There she befriended her French colleagues, Simone Beck and Louisette Bertholle, who would later become her partners in the celebrated cookbook, “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” Learn to cook classic Child recipes with help from the Cooking School Staff.

Menu: Mushroom and Spinach Crêpes; Shrimp Étouffée; Mousse Glacé with Praline aux Noix (Caramel Ice Cream with Walnut Brittle)
