Culinary legend, chef, author and television personality Julia Child was born 100 years ago, August 15, 1912. She is famous for publicizing French cuisine in the United States with writing her gastronomy masterpiece of more than 700 pages, the cookbook titled Mastering the Art of French Cooking. The book was quickly followed by television programs where she presented with her cheery enthusiasm how to cook these recipes. Her life, the years spent in France with learning to cook and writing her giant cookbook was the inspiration for the novel titled Julie & Julia, made into a great film starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams.
