Derek Remsburg/Senior Staff

This past August marked a momentous occasion. It was Foot Health Month and everyone was celebrating. Okay, maybe not. But it was Julia Child’s 100th birthday. For years, this legendary chef inspired would-be professionals and at-home cooks with her bubbly personality and do-it-yourself spirit.

So, in honor of this gastronomical goddess, we present you fine people with a guide to dining in Berkeley. From easy recipes on-the-go, to the ideal date restaurant to the pros and cons of eating in public alone, we give  you a cornucopia of tips to chew on.
