Whether it’s the familiar warble of her voice on The French Chef television series or the parody of her by SNL’s Dan Aykroyd, there can be no denying that Julia Child was and is a moving force in the foodie movement.

Julia Child’s publisher, Alfred A. Knopf, (Knopfbooks), the original publisher of Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961), is putting together quite a celebration for Julia Child’s 100th birthday anniversary.  Like in the book and movie Julie & Julia, many cooks and chefs will be re-creating and photographing recipes to celebrate the iconic American-turned-French-food-enthusiast, Julia Child.  Many of these recipes will be available for online sharing by 100 food bloggers.
