What was it like working with Julia Child?
Working with Julia was an extraordinary moment in my career. On and off camera, Julia was welcoming, generous, and respectful. She was a natural entertainer and consummate professional, but never a prima donna. It was clear that she wanted her guests to be the stars of the show. She stood aside and watched and asked good questions and fetched and carried for me as I worked and as we chatted. One thing I will never ever forget: regardless of how many helpers and staff we had on that set, Julia picked up a towel and started wiping the counter every time the cameras stopped rolling. That was Julia.
