All this week, celebrity chef and David Simon muse, Susan Spicer, will be celebrating the life of food-TV icon, Julia Child. Child, who was born 99 years ago yesterday and died in 2004, revolutionized food television and helped introduce a generation of Americans to French cuisine. Spicer's tribute to Child began yesterday and runs through Saturday at her French Quarter restaurant, Bayona.
Each night features a three course prix fixe menu of Julia Child's recipes, with one the meny changing Thursday. Until Wednesday, Spicer is cooking whole roasted trout with julienne vegetables and calf's liver with onion marmalade. From Thursday to Saturday, the main courses are Salmon Florentine and Poussin Marengo. [Gambit.]
The dinners are $45 and reservations are required.
