Note: Today’s podcast episode above is for a recipe by my husband, Khashayar Parsi, who often sites Julia Child and Jacques Pepin as mentors. It was Julia who gave Jacques his television start. Type “recipe” into this site’s search bar for more recipes including this one for his Jacques-inspired double pop-over.

A man — the man behind the woman — oops — the saying is supposed to go, “Behind every great man is a woman”?! But we all need help. Certainly encouragement never hurts and I’m fortunate my husband has my back as I write my novels.

In Julia Child’s (she was t-h-e trailblazer and iconic TV cooking show host) case, her secret weapon was her husband, Paul Child. As her producer and #1 cheerleader, he made sure viewers like you and me could appreciate her unique personality as well as practically reach through our television screens to smell, taste, touch, and hear her gorgeous dishes… 

Speaking of weapons, let’s back up to her service with the OSS (Office of Special Services), during World War 2. During that time, she was a head typist, plus created her very first recipe; one to repel sharks from naval officers, which decades later was used to keep sharks off of downed space equipment.

Back to her show; she didn’t start cooking until later in life, and eventually began the TV show in her 50s! She’d recently published her famous “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” book that she’d co-wrote with a couple of friends, gave cooking classes as a result, and then was invited onto a very fuddy-duddy Chicago public TV show about books. During her interview, she gave an omelet-making demo that blew everyone’s minds to the extent that the station invited her to host her own show. The rest, as you probably know, is history…

Which is to say that success is ageless. Late-blooming and re-blooming are fave subjects of mine, as on this post and this one.

Julia produced cooking shows well into old age — which is to say that her commitment to service and staying actively involved ought to motivate us all to…


Here in Los Angeles County, voting day is coming up on June 7, 2022. Yes, there are 30 offices to vote for, but that’s no excuse not to do our civic duty. This site about California issues offers great info.

If you live in the U.S., have you voted yet?

    Hope you can find that documentary I mentioned the other day, Killing patient zero.

    And no, I didn’t even know you can listen to amazon music. I’m the traditional gal. I love radio, and when it’s not on (which is very rarely), I love the 80s/90s stuff.

    Thank you for sharing the podcast and the video and story of Julia Child!.. I have watched her and learned a few things about cooking… I did vote this year though I rarely vote in primaries because here in Illinois one has to declare a party and I am independent… I do vote in the general elections in November… 🙂

    Hope all is well in your part of the universe and until we meet again..
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)

    We just had a provincial election up here and less than half the population bothered to vote. But you know the ones who didn’t will be complaining the loudest when things don’t go their way!

      Today was voting day — elections for all sorts of city & state officials. as for Julia Child, it’s never too late to check her out 🙂 Lucy was 1950s, whereas Julia came on the scene in the early 60s, then didn’t leave until she passed away not too long ago

        Best of luck with the election. We all need good people in charge…
        As for Child, I remember Bonanza, the Virginian, FBI, the Invaders, the Fugitive, etc. but not Julia Child. Maybe she was not selected in the countries I lives at the time,….

          ah – probably not, especially with our different measuring system – do you have any cooking shows you remember from back then?

              I didn’t appreciate cooking shows then either. not a lot now, but I’ve found a late appreciation for Julia, especially love how her husband helped her ❤
