The party is a long one, lasting the 100 days leading up to Aug. 15. There's still plenty of time for fans to take part as the publisher is urging people to share Julia Child recipes, photos, memories and stories on various social media sites under the JC100 umbrella.

These recipes range from the famous treatise on French bread in "Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. II," to mayonnaise in "From Julia Child's Kitchen," to Julia's croque monsieur from "Julia and Jacques Cooking at Home." There's even calf's brains in brown butter sauce from "Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. I," the 1961 book that launched Child's career in publishing and television.
The JC100 sites will contain video and written tributes to Child from food celebrities, photographs and quotes, and links to special JC100 recipes recreated by more than 100 food bloggers (vichyssoise, courtesy of "BS' In The Kitchen," bsinthekitchen.com, is one of the most recent examples). You can make the recipe at home and post photos of the results on the JC100 site.
Look for the JC100 celebration on Facebook at facebook.com/JuliaChild; on Twitter at @JC100; on Pinterest at pinterest.com/knopfbooks/jc100; and on Tumblr at jc100.tumblr.com.
