Julia Child is still America's favorite chef and trusted source for rich, decadent French food that elevates any meal into a sophisticated celebration of butter. In honor of what would have been her 100th birthday, Shine is serving up eighteen of Julia's most beloved recipes, from a classic beef stew to a swoon-worthy chocolate cake, all whipped up and photographed by some very talented bloggers. While we're cooking up a storm as fearlessly as Julia would have wanted, we will keep firmly in our heads some of Julia's best bon mots:

• "Find something you're passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it."
• "Moderation in everything, including moderation."
• "This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook, try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun!"

--Sarah McColl, Shine staff
