Famed cooking guru Julia Child would have been 100 this week.

In 1996, TV Guide named the humorous master chef and author one of the 50 greatest TV stars of all time.

She died August 13, 2004, two days before her 92nd birthday.

To celebrate Child's centennial, the Smithsonian's Museum of American History is holding a Happy 100th Julia Child Festival.
