The Julia Episode: Featuring Daniel Goldfarb (Creator of "Julia") and Dorie Greenspan ("Baking with Julia")
What a thrill to share this week’s Amateur Gourmet Podcast: an episode dedicated entirely to Julia Child!
We’re lucky enough to have the creator of the show Julia (and an award-winning playwright) Daniel Goldfarb here to talk all about how the show came about, casting Sarah Lancashire as Julia, taking liberties with the biography, shooting in Boston, and whether they actually made all of that food on set.
But first we have one of the most delightful people in the food world, and also one of the most accomplished, Dorie Greenspan — author of multiple cookbooks and now the essential XOXO Dorie Newsletter — here to talk about collaborating with Julia on the Baking with Julia cookbook.
Dorie shares delightful stories about going to Julia’s kitchen for the first time, how Julia felt about the various impressions of her, and the very first thing that they ate together.
