Julia Child on Late Night with David Letterman (1987)
Here's a video of a cooking segment with Julia Child on Late Night with David Letterman from 1987. When the electric burner doesn't work, she improvises and instead makes beef tartare. And then she breaks out the blowtorch. Sample exchange:
Letterman: Have you ever cooked something that just turned out awful? What do you do then?
Child: Oh, I give it to my husband.
