The French Chef: in celebration of Julia Child

On the day that would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday, the Roadhouse celebrates the woman who introduced French cuisine to the American public.

Often criticized for her use of ingredients like butter and cream, she addressed the critics throughout her career, predicting that a fear of food would take over the country’s dining habits, taking the focus away from enjoying one’s food. Interviewed in 1990, Julia said, “We should enjoy food and have fun. It is one the simplest and nicest pleasures in life.”

Chef Alex will showcase Julia’s best recipes from her many books and work to bring back the real pleasure of eating of really good food.
