Julia Child on Late Night with David Letterman (1987)

julia-child-lettermanHere'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.

  1. Aw, that was so sweet. I love how unpretentious and kind she seems.

  2. One of my favorite things as a kid, was watching Julia cook. She always had this infectious enthusiasm about every recipe that she made!

    Love this clip, the cow sound effect before David trying the dish was awesome :)
