Today marks the 100th birthday of Julia Child! Julia was a true visionary: not only did infuse the food world with her vivacious energy, she inspired Americans to savor cooking – and eating – as a true art form. She is a true culinary hero, and the original “80Biter”.
In fact, we were lucky enough to get a letter from Julia herself, praising 80Bites! Back in 2001 our program was called Diet Directives, but our philosophy of quality over quantity – and savoring every delicious bite – remained the same. As Julia was notorious for her reluctance to endorse products, it was a true honor to be recognized. Check out the original letter from Ms. Child here:
Cheers to you, Julia! Thank you for paving the way for good eating.
