Cooking Up History: Julia Child’s Kitchen Classroom
Fri, Aug 11
In August, “Cooking Up History” will celebrate what would have been Julia Child’s 105th birthday with Sur La Table chef Lynne Just as she prepares dishes from Child’s collaborations with master chefs in the 1990s. The program will take a look at the ingredients, techniques and recipes outside of French cuisine that Child encouraged her viewers and cookbook audiences to try. “Cooking Up History” showcases a guest chef and a Smithsonian host preparing a recipe while discussing its ingredients, culinary techniques and history. After a 45-minute demonstration, visitors will have the opportunity to purchase a dish inspired by the demonstration in the museum’s Stars & Stripes Cafe. 2:00 p.m. Constitution Avenue between 12th and 14th street NW.
