A memory of Julia Child

Yesterday, on WBZ, a former staffer of hers told of Julia's quirky love for
McDonalds, saying that the french fries were so good because they were
cooked in something that wasn't good.

Remember the wayback SNL parodies on Julia.  I think Dan Ackroyd.  In a move
gone horribly wrong, she (Ackroyd) would calmly talk though the recipe while
blood gushes like a garden hose from one former body part or another.  I
recall hearing that Julia was quite taken with the parodies, reaffirming her
wonderful sense of humor and her humility.  I always felt that by
demythologizing fine cuisine, Julia was "cracking the code" privately held
by fancy-pants for generations.
