PBS Food asks chef Susan Feniger, from Border Grill Restaurants, about her time with Julia Child on the show, “Cooking with Master Chefs.” In the midst of the Julia Child 100th Birthday Celebration, Feniger pays tribute to her legacy.
What was it like working with Julia Child?
Julia was absolutely dreamy. She was easy, she always made you feel extra comfortable, and always cared what we were doing. Were we teaching on TV? How our restaurants were? Julia was generous, knowledgeable, humble, funny , witty, wild, and loved life. She was truly someone I respected and thought inspired all, young and old, cooks or not cooks. She didn’t take herself too seriously, nor did she make cooking something just for chefs. She made cooking accessible for everyone. I absolutely adored her.
