Julia Childs and Jacques PepinIn honor of Julia Child’s 100th birthday, MET Culinary Arts instructor Chef Jacques Pépin wrote about some memories of his time with Julia for the New York Times. Julia Child and Chef Pépin co-founded Boston University Metropolitan College’s Culinary Arts and Gastronomy programs in 1989.

The Boston Globe joined in the birthday celebration today with an article that celebrates Julia Child’s impact on the culinary culture of Boston, including memories from a variety of local chefs and our own Rebecca Alssid, director of food and wine programs at Boston University.

We’re celebrating Julia’s centenary with special culinary events this fall, hosted by Boston University’s Culinary Arts and Gastronomy programs.
