Julia Child, grilled cheese and orange soda

jgmc Feb 11, 2014 12:12 PM

I think I recall a segment on some TV interview where Julia Child made grilled cheese and suggested a pairing with orange soda. Does anyone else remember this and who was the segment with? Thanks.

    Sounds great. Cheetos would complete the orange themed lunch...very nicely :)

      Cheetos, grilled cheese, orange soda, and a creamsicle.

      We're good.

        I would totally do that. Maybe a side of Kraft Mac and cheese. I would be fluorescent orange enough to be an elementary school crossing guard... without a vest :)

          After that meal, you are a deer hunter.

      Maybe from her series with Jacques Pepin? Episode 104.

        Nehi orange soda... in a homage to Jean Shepherd.

          It's a miserable shame that few people will know who Jean Shepherd was and probably most of them who have an idea will know only Xmas Story. Still, the movie _is_ a start..

            I listened 6 nights a week as a kid. Fantastic radio.

          Oh, I thought this was a MacGyver riddle.
