Julia Child Birthday Celebration 
This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook - try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun! Julia Child
A few years ago our culinary staff had a Julia Child birthday celebration (Julia's birth date: August 15, 1912). Each of us brought a dish to share using a recipe from one of her cookbooks. Needless to say, it was one of the most delicious pot-lucks any of us had ever been part of! Join us for this class where every recipe demonstrated will be from one of her critically acclaimed books. Julia Child is recognized for bringing French cuisine to the American public and we think this is cause for celebration! Wine Educator Teresa will be here to pair our dishes with French wines!
