Julia Child’s top 100 recipes

Julia Child in her kitchenLike many food-related sites, Food Republic is celebrating Julia Child’s upcoming 100th birthday with celebratory articles. We thought this effort — asking a group of top food people, including Amanda Hesser, chefs Thomas Keller and Jacques Pepin, and Ruth Reichl, to select their favorites from Julia’s recipes – was particularly stimulating.

The list is fascinating, whether you’re looking for new recipe ideas, old friends, or want to object to the omission of one of your favorites. We were especially excited to be reminded about her upside-down apple tarte tatin, cheese soufflé, coq au vin, quick gravlax, and cheese puffs. Bon appétit!

And as a not unimportant aside, we should note that EYB supplied the list of 3,700 recipes to the voting experts; we are especially proud of our Julia Child collection.
