In honor of what would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday (August 15), Alfred A. Knopf is announcing Julia Child Restaurant Week, a component of the “JC100,” in partnership with more than 100 restaurants across America.
From August 7 – 15, notable chefs like Emeril Lagasse (9 of his restaurants in 4 cities), Traci Des Jardins (San Francisco, CA), Alice Waters (Berkeley, CA), Barbara Lynch (Boston, MA) and Michel Richard (Washington, D.C.) “will join the “JC100″ in the exciting celebration of Julia Child, with special menus and events inspired by one of our most beloved culinary icons.”
For four Dallas Restaurants, this celebration might present an interesting challenge. Cadot, Lavendou, Rise No.1, and Landmark at the Warwick Melrose could be participating in two official Restaurant Weeks. For, as we told you yesterday, KRLD Restaurant Week 2012 kicks off with a preview weekend (Aug 10-12) and officially invades 125 DFW restaurants on August 13 and their special menus could run for one, two, or three weeks.
KRLD Restaurant Week participants donate $7 from each $35 prix fixe dinner to the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope Home. The press release for the “JC100” says: “restaurants will feature dishes, menus or events inspired by 100 of Julia’s most cherished recipes, which were handpicked from a list of 3,700 by a jury of culinary luminaries chaired by her longtime editor Judith Jones.” Oh, and coincidentally, Alfred A. Knopf will release DEARIE: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child, author Bob Spitz’s new biography of Julia.
Here’s the complete “JC100″ list. Here’s the Facebook page. Here’s a little song you can all join in with, it’s very simple and I hope its’new.
Private|Social is spicing things up this summer with a couple of events you guys might find interesting. Execuchef T. Derry is teaching some mixology classes along with Rocco Milano. She’s also inviting some celebrity chefs like Kevin Sbraga, Angelo Sosa, and Carla Hall from her good ‘ole days as a Top Chef contestant to co-host special dinners.
The dinners are $125 per person for 4-5 courses. Cooking classes are $80, mixology classes are $25, but if you pair the cooking with mixology class together, you can save five bucks and only pay $100. Good deal.
Jump because you like press releases as much as I do. /s/
We’re suckers for any press release that contains the following sentences:
It seems a couple well-intentioned entrepreneurs have teamed up with J&D’s Foods to create a little something they’re calling baconlube—the world’s first bacon-flavored, water-based, American-made, personal lubricant.
Billing itself as the “gold standard of meat-flavored massage oils” (natch) baconlube, they say, is like the McRib of sex: it’s delicious, makes men crazy, is here for a limited time, and is in short supply.
If you’re thinking “stocking stuffer!” (let’s stay on track here), we’re right behind you. But the boys only made 3,000 bottles of this pork-flavored nectar. It hit the interwebs yesterday at www.baconlube.com. How much, you ask, for a product that promises such a satisfying holiday season? Only $11.99.
