It’s almost celebration time! As you can see, PBS has given Julia Child a fresh new sound for her 100th birthday — enjoy it here in “Julia Child Remixed.” Let it serve as your inspiration, if you haven’t done so yet, to submit your entry to our “Courage of Your Convictions in the Kitchen” Contest! We’re looking for the best story (500 words or fewer) about a time you exercised the courage of your convictions, either in your cooking or your eating. So tell us about that salvaged souffle, that tricky Thanksgiving turkey, or the time you sampled that dish that your friends thought belonged on Fear Factor but that actually turned out to be wonderful. Send the story to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Julia Child Contest Entry” in the header before the end of today, and you could win a $50 Bistro gift certificate!
We’d like to thank you for your enthusiasm about our Julia Child Wine Dinner that caps off our festivities tomorrow night: it’s sold out. We’re looking forward to a fantastic evening and we want you to have fun — you’re invited to come dressed as Julia if the spirit moves you! But the only requirement is that you bring your appetite and your sense of adventure. It’s sure to be a celebration you’ll remember for a long time to come!
