Celebrating Julia Child and the Documentary "Julia"

The beautifully produced documentary, "Julia" is now playing in theaters - I encourage you all to see it.

Earlier this week, Cinema Society, Chef Daniel Boulud, and I hosted a reception celebrating Julia Child and the new documentary directed by Julie Cohen and Betsy West, and executive-produced by Ron Howard, Alex Prud'homme, and Brian Grazer under Imagine Entertainment and CNN Films. The event was held in New York City. Chef Daniel and I curated a wonderful menu filled with many of the delicious dishes Julia taught us all how to make in her landmark books and television shows, including Beef Bourguignon, Potato Gratin Dauphinois, Moules à la Marinière, and Pâté en Croûte. And for dessert, we enjoyed Apple Tart Tatins and Chocolate Mousse. It was an honor to co-host the gathering and to celebrate the life of such an incredible chef and teacher -- Julia Child.

Here are some photos.
