Today much of the food world is uniting to celebrate what would have been the one hundredth birthday for the passionate French chef, Julia Child.  Although she is gone, her personality, love for food and use of butter have not been forgotten.

USA Today shared an article capturing the many ways she still lives on today and The New York Times surprised us all with a fun fact from the devoted French cook: she loved Chinese food.

In honor of her birthday below are a few of our favorite quotes from Julia, a video from ICE President and CEO, Rick Smilow, recounting his experience meeting her and two events at ICE allowing you to celebrate with us: a panel and a cooking class.

“You’ll never know everything about anything, especially something you love.”

“If you’re afraid of butter, use cream.”

“Always start out with a larger pot than what you think you need.”

“The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook.”

“How can a nation be called great if its bread tastes like Kleenex?”

Bon anniversaire and bon appétit!
