It’s easy to think of Julia Child as being the proto-Martha Stewart. Her influence on mid-day programing for stay at home moms is pronounced, but to consider this the totality of her life is a mistake. Before she was a celebrity chef, Julia Child was a spy. Well, not a spy, per se, but she did work with the OSS (the WWII version of the CIA) in Ceylon and in China. To honor this portion of her life, and to promote the upcoming film Julie & Julia, the International Spy Museum and Chef Bryan Moscatello are throwing a dinner at Zola. The dinner will feature food made famous by Ms. Child as well as stories of her time in the OSS. The event will be held on August 20th. For tickets, call 202-654-0964.
