let them use cream

There is a pledge drive on this evening for our local public TV station, and between the pledge spots they are showing old clips of the TV cook Julia Child. I had never seen her before and she is completely fab (I think it was her 90th birthday yesterday) – quite akin to the Two Fat Ladies.

Case in point: they showed a clip of a live show she did about six years ago where the recipe called for a ton of butter. She said “Many people are afraid of butter these days, so if you don’t wish to use it … cream will do instead”.
