Julia Child 'Fake-Off' attracts fans of food and film

On Friday, September 4, Winds Cafe and Little Art Theatre teamed up to present a Julia Child "Fake-Off" Contest followed by the Yellow Springs premiere screening of the movie "Julie & Julia." Contestants Jon Prater (left) and Rick Rutan (right) are pictured above with master of ceremonies and local actress, Rani Crowe. Contestants were encouraged to dress as Julia Child and offer a favorite Julia quote, cooking tip, or short skit with the screening audience serving as judge. The $20 event included "Cocktails with Julia" at the Winds Cafe with Julia Child-inspired hors d'oeuvres, contest, and screening. Contest winners received food-related gift prizes.
