Celebrate Julia Child’s 100th Birthday With This Snazzy Remix and Google Doodle

Before all the celebrity chefs with their agents and their fancy hair there was Julia Child. The Grand Dame of American cooking would have been 100 today.

While Child didn’t need a lot of bells and whistles to make compelling TV, the auto-tuned remix of her classic show — created by the folks at PBS who brought us the Bob Ross and Mr. Rogers‘ remixes — is a good introduction to Child for younger folks weaned on Guy Fieri.

Mmm, we can just taste the roasted potatoes. And that knife solo was pretty epic.

Did you know before becoming a chef Child worked at the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the precursor to the CIA? You can’t imagine Rachael Ray as a spy, can you?

It’s a testament to Child’s continued popularity that she was the inspiration for the 2009 hit movie ‘Julie & Julia’ and that reruns of her old cooking shows still air on many PBS stations.

The folks at Google also paid tribute to the late chef today. Check out the special Julia Child doodle that graced the website for her 100th birthday below.
