“Jackson’s and Julia:  A Celebration of the 108th Birthday of Julia Child”

In celebration of famed chef Julia Child’s birthday, Jackson’s Steakhouse will be offering special features for both lunch and dinner service in her honor on Saturday, August 15, 2020.


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 lunch and dinner menus, Chef Irv Miller has created Julia Child-inspired features for the day. Lunch will feature Parmesan Chicken Breast with brown butter, mashed potatoes, and greens salad with fresh herb vinaigrette; dinner will offer her renowned Beef Bourguignon recipe featuring slow-braised beef in red wine with bacon, onions, carrots, fresh herbs and mushrooms. In addition, for both lunch and dinner, Chef will offer Julia’s classic Niçoise Salad featuring artisanal greens, blanched green beans, white potato salad, vine ripe tomatoes, hard boiled eggs, capers, broken grilled tuna, anchovy fillets and black Niçoise olives


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 appétit!
