Julia Child (1912–2004) brought haute cuisine to Americans—and forever changed the way we think about food—through some forty years of cooking shows and a shelf full of best-selling cookbooks. In honor of the new feature film Julie & Julia (starring Meryl Streep as Julia Child), the Paley Center is pleased to screen a sampler of “delicious morselsas Julia Child herself might say—from our collection. Included are a highlight tape of memorable moments from her shows; excerpts from Ms. Child’s interview at The Paley Center for Media in 2000 (then called The Museum of Television & Radio); and one of her earliest programs—in which she prepares chicken with vegetables and risotto—from The French Chef, which debuted in 1963 on WGBH in Boston. (45 minutes)
