Celebrating Julia Child with 15 Inspiring Seafood Recipes. 

Julia Child was an inspirational chef who used her charm to introduce Americans to a fanciful French style of cooking and even some fusion ideas. Her cooking shows, although not the first cooking shows on television, were game-changing. Well-known as the sometimes clumsy chef, she showed the world you don’t have to be perfect to make a perfect dish. It’s no wonder why she became a household name, won many awards, and eventually became the first woman to be inducted into the Culinary Institute of America’s Hall of Fame. To honor this woman on her birthday, Today, August 15th, let’s share some of her most classic and inspiring seafood recipes. @SamuelsSeafood, if you’re making anything for Julia!
