Julia Child Day

With an annual event that has become a favorite among students, Smith celebrates the passion of alumna Julia Child, Class of 1934. Author of a dozen cookbooks and host of the long-running PBS television series The French Chef, Child is credited with changing the way we think about food in America.

The first Julia Child Day, held in 2004, featured a panel discussion, “Julia Child: A Zest for Living,” a celebration of food, pleasure and culture. Themes since then have ranged from “How Communities Come Together Through Food” to “What I Learned in the Kitchen.”

Smith will celebrate Julia Child Day Thursday, November 20, 2014, with Child’s dishes in the Campus Center Café from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and special dinner menus in the student dining rooms. A reception from 3 to 4 p.m. on Chapin Lawn will feature local cheeses, cider and apples. More...
