Celebrating Julia Child’s 100th Birthday
Today would be Julia Child's 100th birthday. In celebration of the centennial anniversary of her birth, we thought we'd share a Julia Child-inspired DIY project from The Nest magazine. Despite the fact that she was one of the most-celebrated chefs in her day, Julia Child's Cambridge, MA kitchen was surprisingly modest. Child famously stored her pots and pans right on the wall using a pegboard and hook organizer that her husband Paul Child built for her beloved "batterie de cuisine."
Julia Child is credited with introducing French cooking to America in her television show The French Chef, which began in 1963. You can catch reruns of these classic episodes on PBS all month (check local listings for programs)!
Read on to see how Child's no-nonsense kitchen inspired a real couple:
