On Saturday, August 22 at 1:00 p.m., KETC/Channel 9 pays tribute to Child with the broadcast of Julia Child Memories: Bon Appetit!, a two-hour retrospective featuring three of the most memorable episodes from The French Chef: Bouillabaisse à la Marseillaise, To Roast a Chicken and The Omelette Show.

Because the broadcast coincides with the theatrical release of the film comedy Julie & Julia, starring Meryl Streep as Child, the program includes commentary from Streep and author Julie Powell, who wrote the book on which the film is based. Also included are Nora Ephron, the writer/director of Julie & Julia; chef Gordon Hamersley of Hamersley’s Bistro; Russell Morash, producer/director of The French Chef; Sara Moulton, executive chef of Gourmet Magazine; fellow TV chef Jacques Pepin; chef Lydia Shire of Locke-Ober; actor Stanley Tucci; and chef Jasper White of Summer Shack.
