On August 15th, it will be Julia Child's 107th birthday. On 8/26, it will be the 99th anniversary of women winning the right to vote and National Women's Equality Day. In honor of that, we put together a tribute meal made up of dishes from some of our favorite women chefs and writers. Since it's August, the menu will be chock-full of produce from our farm in Cotati, CA, there will be plenty of tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash, cucumbers and greens. We'll also be pouring wines from some of our favorite female winemakers. This will be a special dinner, we hope you can make it!
