"Jackson's and Julia: A Celebration of the 100th Birthday of Julia Child"
In celebration of famed chef Julia Child's 100th birthday on Wednesday, August 15, Jackson's Steakhouse will be offering two special features in her honor.
Julia Child was America's first, although fairly reluctant, food celebrity. Although she adamantly insisted that she wasn't a "chef," Child nonetheless single-handedly changed the way we think about food in this country. With a dozen cookbooks to her credit and countless hours of televised cooking shows, Julia Child demonstrated her mastery of French cuisine with unparalleled grace and ease.
In addition to our regular dinner menu, Chef Irv Miller has created a Julia Child-inspired salad as well as a featured entrée. The salad feature is a take on Julia's recipe for Niçoise Salad - artisanal greens, green beans, shallots, tomatoes, capers, tuna, anchovy fillets and black niçoise olives. The entrée feature will be the beloved favorite and classic recipe, Beef Bourguignon - bacon, beef, onions, carrots, red wine, fresh herbs and mushrooms.
Since her birthday celebration falls on a Wednesday, we will also be offering our traditional Wednesday evening special, Wine Down Wednesday, with all bottles on our award-winning wine list offered at half off.
This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some of Julia Child's most-loved recipes. For reservations, please call Jackson's Steakhouse, (850) 469-9898. Bon Appetit!
