#CookforJulia-- Celebrating Julia Child's 100th Birthday

by Matt Schoch, PBS Food

Julia Child is perhaps the quintessential PBS icon: She pioneered an entire genre while appearing on public television. This spy-turned-chef-turned-television star taught a generation of food lovers that cooking can be easy and enjoyable.  

This August, Julia would have celebrated her 100th birthday, and PBS is ready to throw a party in her honor.

We’re hosting a webinar on Wednesday, June 27 at 2pm ET, to summarize our plans for #CookForJulia – a celebration of the life and legacy of America’s first woman of cooking.

Learn how stations can participate in the #CookForJulia interactive social media promotion, what broadcast (and COVE streaming) specials will be airing, and how to leverage the resources PBS will make available for locally-themed celebrations.

In honoring Julia’s legacy, we reinforce the PBS story with media and consumers as an organization committed to providing American viewers with broader perspectives and educational media content that expand the minds of adults and children alike.

Bon Appetit!
