When I Met Julia Child

August 24th, 2009

Back in the 90s, I was researching a project I dreamed up – filming cooking schools around the world – and when I saw that Julia was appearing at Macy’s and signing books, I thought: ask her what she thinks. After all, I’m spending a life savings to travel solo around the world filming cooking schools teaching their indigenous cuisine. I wanted some feed-back.

Her cooking demo was preparing: Chicken Breast en Piperade, Braised in Peppers, Onions, Tomatoes and Herbs. The sizzle and aroma was amazing and her sense of humor enchanted the audience.

But I was on a mission and nervously waited till she sat at the signing platform and started signing books. It seemed like forever but finally it was my turn in line. When an assistant, Lenada Merrick, asked what I want signed in the book, I requested: To Fellow Leo. When Julia heard this she smirked and I realized it was my time to ask her about my project.

As we know, Julia was 6’2 and bigger than life. When I started telling her about my idea, she listened. When I finished, she stood up and threw her arms up and said: “This is the best idea I’ve heard in a long time!” Standing on that 2 ft high platform with her arms extended, I had a religious experience. She liked my idea!

She went on and created her Master Chefs series and I eventually fulfilled my dream and traveled the world solo filming talented teachers and chefs. I still feel lucky to have had her affirmation.
