What a better example than to see the twinkle-eyed Jacques giggling under his breath with Julia while filming their cooking shows, for reasons only known to the passionate duo. After plating a dessert ,Julia might have said something like, “You most certainly cannot put this glass in the dishwasher” Then laugher would be shared between the two friends, and “CUT!” Was it something discussed before the show? Did she go off to banter about durable stem wear behind the camera? Did Jacques tell her she needed to upgrade to that fancy dishwasher for the new modern woman? The details were unimportant to me because I would be left feeling the magic of friendship that would warm my heart to the core. Julia and Jacques showed me just how powerful celebrating the culinary process together, with people that you love, can be.
