My friend Lars Lohn (of Uncommon Rose fame) showed me this awesome Youtube clip!

It’s an excerpt from a PBS science series in the 80’s where Julia Child intentionally burns her food. Why? To make carbon, of course. The Phil she refers to is Phil Morrison, who hosts the series, titled “Ring of Truth.” My favorite touch is the tablespoon of course salt in the middle of the plate – “Just the way Phil likes it.”
