Leave Your Own Julia Child Tribute

PBS is celebrating Julia Child’s 100th birthday with #CookForJulia, a worldwide party in which food lovers honor her legacy by cooking one of her recipes leading up to her birthday on August 15. PBS Food is also highlighting Julia’s amazing life with never-before streamed episodes, celebrity chef tributes and more.

Julia Child not only pioneered an entire genre of television, she taught a generation of food lovers that cooking can be easy and enjoyable.

In honor of her 100th birthday this August, we want to know how Julia has inspired and influenced you. Did she motivate you to become a cook? Did she keep you from being intimidated by making your own omelet? Did she turn you on to the glorious taste of butter?

Write us a tribute to Julia and leave it in the comments below. We’ll highlight our favorites and even share them on our Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr pages.

And don’t forget to cook a Julia recipe between August 5 and 15th!
