PBS has been airing re-runs of the great Jacques Pepin and Julia Child show, Jacques and Julia. Last night, Em and I watched their beef episode. Emily watched in horror while I was greatly amused–both at Jacques and Julia as well as Emily’s reaction.
It’s incredible how much filming food has changed in recent times (it looks so much better now). Anyhow, you can’t ask for more than these two, who genuinely liked each other. They just got together, drank wine, and cooked. They let the editors piece it together into a show. Some poor writer had to watch each episode and piece together the recipes because J & J made them up on the spot.
