Today is Julia Child’s 90th birthday. To honor the occasion, some friends and I are tossing an honorary birthday party. It will be an alfresco event, since Julia was born in the summertime.

I doubt the emulated chef would leave her home in Santa Barbara to attend our little fete, but I know the kinds of foods she loves to eat. Julia is neither picky nor fussy. She adores everything from tuna on rye to foie gras.

One day in 1932, Philadelphians and the world were treated to the opening of a modern masterpiece. On that day, the Philadelphia Savings Fund Society, simply known as PSFS, the oldest bank in the United States, opened its headquarters at the corner of 12th and Market streets. Designed by architect William Lescaze, the soaring skyscraper — a masterpiece of steel, granite and limestone — was truly awe-inspiring. Lescaze topped off the building with the letters PSFS lit by bright-pink neon.

While Lorraine Lerner was raising her son as a single mom, she relied on fast and easy dinners to prepare when she came home from work.

One of her favorite recipes at that time — still a winner today — was pasta with zucchini, a wholesome dish that can be whipped up in about 45 minutes.
