Feliz Aniversário, The French Chef

Although this has absolutely nothing to do with Brazil or Brazilian cooking, Flavors of Brazil couldn't let today, the 11th of February, pass unnoticed and unremarked. Because it was on this date in 1963, in probably what was a quite wintry Boston, that the very first episode of The French Chef was broadcast on that city's PBS station. And on that same date, the USA's (and the world's) love affair with the star of the show, Julia Child, began to blossom. And the bloom hasn't come off the rose to this day.

So a very happy 49th anniversary to The French Chef! We can't wait for next year and the 50th anniversary celebrations.

In the meantime, here's a early episode of The French Chef starring Julia and a goose, courtesy of YouTube:
