We’d just been talking about Snack vs. Chef with Adam on the main podcast, so we were glad he could join us for a look waaaay back at the grandmama of cooking shows, The French Chef. In this episode, filmed in black and white and aired at the end of 1963, Julia Child rants about crappy kitchenware, coughs on stuff, grosses us out with canned ham…but is her usual welcoming, soothing self, full of practical tips for last-minute appetizers (and trying valiantly not to swear on camera). Join us for a fond reminiscence about monoculture public television and midcentury decor, and Happy New Year!
