PBS Food asked Chef Joachim Splichal of Patina Restaurant Group about his time with Julia Child on the show, “In Julia’s Kitchen with Master Chefs.” In the midst of Julia Child 100th Birthday Celebration, Splichal pays tribute to her legacy.
What was it like working with Julia Child?
Working with Julia was like a dream. I remember thinking how fantastic it was for a woman her age to have more energy than most people who worked for me. For example, she was in the kitchen at 5 am working hard to get the segment done and had her last glass of wine at 11 pm at a local restaurant in Boston.
