    I could not understand a single word that Julia ever said LOL but she was a great presence and I can tell that Jaques loved her very much

    I was too young to have appreciated Julia, but I now watch Jacques and appreciate his art. I notice how much he mentions Julia and begin to see how these very nice people must have influenced each others' lives

    Monsieur Pépin. Merci de nous avoir nous avoir ouvert à une cuisine qui nous paraissait inabordable. Et merci à vous, Madame Child, pour votre grand talent sans retenue. Nous avons tous apprécié ces grands artistes de la cuisine. Merci!

    A beautiful tribute to an iconic lady who was a perfect professional partner to this equally famous gentleman.

    Can one truly love people one has never met? It would seem so. Julia and Jacques are people I love very much. I suspect I am not alone.

    What a classy, touching, even poignant memorial; well done. If you are old enough to remember Julia Child's show back in the day, you will find it all the more so if you first watch her biography which I believe is available right here on TVclip. I vividly remember being a kid and watching the infamous SNL skit as it aired, live, and my mother and her sister were literally falling out of their chairs laughing uncontrollably. Here's to you, Julia.

    The greatest cooking duo ever. I loved their show Julia and Jacques Cooking Together.

    Someone asked earlier if Jacques Pepin was from Quebec. Some answered that he was from eastern France, near Lyon. That contains truth, but I chuckled, thinking of all the times he resolutely corrected Julia on the subject. Jacques, in his own words, is from Connecticut.

    Indeed we could talk about Julia for hours. Jacques stirs some wonderful memories in this short clip. Julia taught me so much about cooking in the 60s and 70s, while at the same time teaching me how to have fun with it. She was a treasured part of my life, and this is a fine tribute.

    I grew up watching both of you. It is so wonderful to know that your friendship had so many facets and had such humble beginnings. You both are inspiring legends. I watch you on WUSF on Create every week. I wish you health and happiness. Thank you too for your tribute to her.
