Today the culinary community is honoring and celebrating one of its most beloved icons: Julia Child. Her memorable trill and fearless attitude toward kitchen conquests are legendary; her recipes, classics.

PBS celebrated by remixing some of Julia’s best moments and our good friends at Cooking Channel shared 10 Facts You Didn’t Know About Julia Child. (They also have a great collection of her recipes, if you’re looking for a little honorary dinner inspiration.)

You can commemorate Julia Child’s 100th birthday by making one of her signature recipes, like Coq au Vin, French Onion Soup or Roast Chicken — after all, who could forget the chicken episode of her famed show, The French Chef? Julia was also known for her delectable Cheese Soufflé recipe, one that makes our list of favorites along with her Pan-Fried Burger recipe.

What’s your favorite Julia Child recipe? Tell us in comments below!

Bon Appétit!
