Next week – August 15 – is Julia Child’s birthday and we plan to celebrate all week long.

Food People:  We want to see your photo of a favorite Julia Child recipe that you made. Post your pic to our Facebook wall by this Friday, August 6th, tell us how you made it or came to love it, and we’ll round up our favorites in a gallery dedicated to Julia (with links and love back to your blog or site if you like).

Let’s get her party started with Julia’s Cherry Clafouti by Divya Vikram of Dil Se...
