Happy 100th birthday Julia!  If you haven't read her book "My Life in France" yet, you should!  Her joy and enthusiasm for French cooking is evident, even though she arrived in France not speaking a word of the language or knowing much of the culture.   Her advice on how to survive a French dinner party- "Just speak very loudly and quickly, and state your position with utter conviction, as the French do, and you'll have a marvelous time!"
