JC100 Logo Intro Cred­ited as the woman who rev­o­lu­tion­ized North America’s rela­tion­ship with food, Julia Child remains a culi­nary icon whose books, TV series and inim­itable culi­nary style live on in the hearts of chefs, home cooks and gour­mands who con­tinue to be inspired by her.

At 91, Child passed away at her home in Santa Bar­bara, CA in 2004. This August 15th marks the 100th year anniver­sary of her birth­day. In cel­e­bra­tion of this occa­sion, we have taken the voices of those who knew Julia best in a series of documentary-style podcasts.

Part 1: Julia Child’s Inner Cir­cle: Judith Jones, Alex Prud’homme and Bob Spitz

Part 2: The Cana­dian Con­nec­tion: Ali­son Fryer, Hart Melvin, Mark McE­wan and Jamie Kennedy

Part 3: Stephanie Hersch

Part 4: Judith Jones

I don’t think about whether peo­ple will remem­ber me or not. I’ve been an okay per­son. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve taught peo­ple a thing or two. That’s what’s impor­tant.” – Julia Child
