Hear Callie Crossley interview Chef Jacky and the first director of The French Chef, Rush Morash, on her 100th birthday.
Jacky Robert first met Julia Child in 1973. He had recently moved to Boston from France with his uncle and opened a restaurant. One night, Julia visited their dining room. Robert was so happy that she spoke French.
"She was a delight. I fell in love with her," Robert said. He added that her favorite dishes from his restaurant were the Dover Sole, the Rack of Lamb and she especially loved his apple tart. But more than anything, Julia loved butter. "She felt like there was no cooking without butter," he said.
Chef Jacky honored Julia's 100th birthday at Petit Robert with a tribute, coooking demonstration and dishes inspired by her.
