NEW YORK, N.Y. - In honour of what would have been Julia Child's 100th birthday, it will be a week of "Bon Appetit" at restaurants nationwide.

From Chez Panisse in Berkeley, Calif., to New York's Union Square Cafe, restaurants are serving up dishes through Aug. 15 based on recipes by the famous cookbook author and television personality. Child, born Aug. 15, 1912, died in 2004 just before her 92nd birthday.

Publisher Alfred A. Knopf announced Wednesday that the menus were chosen by a panel of "culinary luminaries" that was chaired by Child's longtime editor, Judith Jones.
