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. August 15th, 2012 marked 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.

“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
