What do chef’s tables, Julia Child’s birthday & school backpacks have in common? They are all celebrated this month at Roundz Gourmet Market! Chef Zachary Pope offers these cool events for a hot August:
100 years of Julia Child – August 15 – Wednesday- 11 AM to 8 PM
Late chef and author Julia Child (1912-2004) was born 100 years ago today. Her two-volume cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking made a complex cuisine more accessible for home cooks, while her popular television cooking shows made her a cultural icon. Celebrate her vision with us on this day with French-inspired menu specials from 11 am to 8 pm, and try your hand at Roundz/Julia trivia. Bon Appetit!

And, to make the whole back-to-school thing more palatable- free cookies with each meal purchased! We can’t extend summer break, but we can make your dinner sweeter. Enjoy!
