Julia Child Inspires Virtual Cooking Class

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A virtual cooking course happening today (Aug. 6) will teach wannabe chefs how to command the kitchen like Julia Child.

To celebrate the theatrical release of Julie & Julia starring Meryl Streep as Julia Child – the renowned chef who introduced French cuisine to mainstream America – Le Cordon Bleu Schools North America is hosting an online cooking class today with Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard at the helm.

At 2 PM EST, Izard will host an interactive class where she’ll provide step-by-step instructions on how to make two dishes inspired by Child and the film, Beef Bourguignon and Chocolate Chiffon Pie.

Students can watch the action streaming live at chef.edu/JulieandJulia, join in the coversation, and ask questions along the way by following on Twitter.

Like the famous culinary queen, Izard is a graduate of the Le Cordon Bleu program.
