Weekend Wayback – Drink Wine With Dinner® Day – Lead-Up to Julia Child’s Birthday!

For many years, I enjoyed a  delightful correspondence with Julia, in which she encouraged me in the early years of my career. Several times, during Julia's visits to the SF Bay Area, I had the  honor of assisting her at her book signings. (The lines of people always went out the door!)

Hi, my friends – and welcome back! Hope you’ve been enjoying our May adventures.

I’ve got something a bit unusual for you today – a “Weekend Wayback” about an annual August event. It’s “Drink Wine With Dinner® Day” – and it’s slated for August 15th.

So, why now? Well, this year we’re leading up to the big event with something fun – and of course “Drink Wine With Dinner®” related – on the 15th of every month! So here we are, on May 15th, for our kickoff…

Usually, when I mention “Drink Wine With Dinner®,” most people ask me what it is. Well, as you’ll see in today’s “Weekend Wayback” recap, I realized several years ago that Julia Child was soon about to turn 100.

And since she had been my mentor in the food-and-wine career that I love so much, I wanted to do something very special to honor her.

So I created a holiday on Julia Child’s birthday – August 15th – to celebrate.

Anyone who’s followed my Drink Wine With Dinner® blog for a while may already know the story.

And maybe you’ve even joined in, and enjoyed your own inventive Drink Wine With Dinner® tastings – prompted, perhaps, by some of my fun wine-and-food combos.

When I came up with the Drink Wine With Dinner® Day idea for Julia Child’s August 15th birthday, I also realized that – here in the U.S. at least – there are no holidays in August.

"The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you've got to have a what-the-hell attitude." ~ Julia Child.

I also thought it would be fun to spread the fun throughout the year by honoring Julia with a Drink Wine With Dinner® Day on the 15th of every month – and inviting food-and-wine lovers worldwide to join in the celebration.

What could be better? Not just one special day a year to honor Julia, but twelve – one each month, on the 15th!

Throughout August – which, by the way, has become “Drink Wine With Dinner® *Month*” – I’ll bring you tasty, tempting pairings to enjoy and experiment with. Until then (and afterward), I’ll do something special for the 15th of every month of the year.

You can email me – Rosina@DrinkWineWithDinner.com – and let me know what *you* plan to enjoy for Drink Wine With Dinner® Day – today on May 15th, or on the 15th of any month.

I might even publish your recipe and wine pairing in a future Drink Wine With Dinner® blog post, and beyond – with full credit, of course!
