Happy Birthday to [Me and] Julia Child!



So it turns out that the queen of the cleaver and the bella of butter, Julia Child and I share the same birthday week! Ironic? I think not!
Julia's birthday is August 15th and in celebration, one of my fave spots, Napoleon's Macarons has created a speciaJulia Child-inspired macaron and a macaron six pack in honor of the culinary icon’s birthday.

The Chocolate & Almond Macaron is inspired by Child’s recipe for Reine de saba (Chocolate & Almond Cake)
