Happy Birthday Julia! Contest and Giveaway

Pin it button big

Happy birthday, Julia Child! August 15 was Julia Child's birthday, and we're celebrating through the rest of the week with an impromptu contest and giveaway.

To honor her classic French style and famous affinity for butter, here is our challenge to you.

Tell us the best culinary use for a pound of French butter. Be as creative and as descriptive as possible. Post your idea here in the comments, and feel free to comment on others' ideas as well! We'll choose our favorite and award a prize on Friday. The winner gets a copy of (what else?) Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Bon appétit!
