Watch an Unexpectedly Delightful Mashup of Julia Child and Guns N’ Roses


This month marks would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday, and to celebrate, Boston public TV station WGBH has created a tribute video that pairs clips from her groundbreaking ’60s cooking show, The French Chef, with a “Sweet Child of Mine” soundtrack. For those of you who are less familiar with the six-foot-two culinary legend — or whose working knowledge is limited to Meryl Streep’s portrayal in Julie & Julia — it serves as a nice introduction to what a zany character Child really was; to learn more about her fascinating life and the early years of her career, we highly recommend picking up a copy of her memoir, My Life in France.

Watch Julia Child’s 100th birthday on PBS. See more from WGBH Specials.
