Celebrity chefs Vivian Howard, Marcus Samuelsson, Carla Hall and Sara Moulton follow Julia Child’s bread making recipes for classic pain de mie and a raisin bread. Sara highlights Julia’s role in re-orienting people’s perception of food, while Carla notes Julia’s skill in making ingredients and techniques accessible. And all the chefs note that by this point, Julia had her on-camera look honed.
José Andres and Eric Ripert are amazed by Julia Child’s hands-on treatment of a whole fish. They discuss her ability to dive in to fish filleting while encouraging viewers to attempt this difficult preparation. José jokes about his debt to Julia for popularizing fish in America and both are impressed with the information Julia conveys in the show and her ability to work without any retakes.
