Have you tried any of Julia Child's recipes before? Oh boy, I’ve been smitten with her for a while now and I treat her cookbook like something incredibly precious in my kitchen. So you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon those 1963 photos of her on the set of The French Chef and those behind the scenes trying out recipes. You can totally feel her wittiness and humour there, can’t you? It was during one of those tapings when the infamous potato pancake fail occurred. Eek, she totally handled it like a pro! Are you Julia’s fan? xo
P.S: Here is her in action making the famous boeuf bourguignon and here she is making hamburgers on David Letterman.
P.P.S: Also, here is her garlic tip and my favourite poached egg trick.
