I know it sounds weird, bit as a little kid, I loved her show on PBS. I watched her as a kid and it stirred my interest in coooking which is now my job. Politics aside, she was a great dame

Not a fan of Meryl Streeps' politics, but the movie she did about Julia Child is excellent.

I watched Childs' cooking shows for years. They finally had to take her off because she was drinking too much. It just went with her character...which was her being herself.
Bless her...it helped develop my appreciation for the nuances of cooking...and enjoying life.

Many of you know that Julia was a Bostonian.Some may even know that 1) she lived in the richest,most “progressive” section of Cambridge (Brattle Street) and 2)that she was a power behind the scenes at Boston’s PBS station (WGBH).What most don’t know is that she was up to her eyeballs in one of the filthiest little pieces of “progressive” racism in recent Boston history (google “Commonwealth Day School”) and that when one of WGBH’s own commentators once went on the air to expose this filthy incident she got on the phone and demanded that the producer shut the commentator up...*while he was on the air*.This incident alone qualifies her for the title of filthy,phoney left wing racist.
