Chicago: Traveling Dinner Series Commemorates 10 Years of The Julia Child Award

The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts  launched a cross-country dinner series in celebration of the Julia Child Award’s 10th anniversary. Raising awareness of and critical funds for the Smithsonian Food History Project at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, the series will travel to past recipients’ hometowns to commemorate a decade of honoring visionaries who shape the way America cooks, eats, and drinks. Created in 2014, the Julia Child Award is given to an individual or team who has greatly impacted society through his or her work in culinary arts, with past recipients known for accomplishments in kitchens, community activism, academia, and the hospitality business. Hosted by Rick Bayless (2016) at Topolobampo, the Chicago dinner event will have an individual look and feel, spotlighting the locale’s iconic culinary scene. Tickets are now available to purchase for the kick-off dinner in Houston, with tickets for additional events in the series to be released via The Julia Child Foundation’s event page on a rolling basis.
