Julia Child Tasting Party

Julia Child Tasting Party

Join Tom and raise a glass to Julia!

Our favorite culinary icon, Julia Child, who towers above all others as the most beloved cookbook writer and cooking show personality of our time, was born 106 years ago, on August 15, 1912.  Julia, by way of her cookbooks and her PBS cooking shows, is renowned for bringing sophisticated French cooking into American home kitchens.

To celebrate her birthday, we’re going to turn both the Hot Stove Society classroom and the entire Hot Stove Bar into a festive party space packed with tasting stations. Our Hot Stove team will be cooking up a delicious array of Julia’s French inspired cuisine for you to taste.

A glass of sparkling wine for Julia’s birthday toast is included. No host bar with wine and cocktails available for purchase.

Enjoy eating some of Julia’s (and our) favorite French food, mingle, have a drink, listen to music, and unleash your creativity at a "Happy Birthday, Julia" cookie decorating station. You might even win a prize for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place!

Tasting Party Menu:

  • Paté de Campagne with crostini
  • Pissaladiere- traditional French tart of flaky pastry filled with caramelized onions, anchovies, and black olives
