So many Americans have fond memories of Julia Child’s legendary cooking shows on PBS. But Bohdan Zachary, chief programmer at KCET, is lucky to have memories of a very special experience: visiting Child in 2002 in her apartment at a Montecito, Calif., seniors’ complex. “Julia was the one and only resident allowed to turn her guest bedroom into a kitchen,” noted Zachary, who was there with a camera crew to interview Child for a retrospective to run during a fundraiser. Zachary made an interesting discovery in the kitchen — a toaster oven. Child told him she enjoyed learning new ways to prepare food using the handy little appliance.
