Described as the first “rockstar chef” and a “dynamic force that would not be silenced,” Childs fell in love with French cuisine and shared her passion stateside.
“Cooking was a world of men,” we’re told in the spot. “Women were basically part of the window dressing.” The TV personality and “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” author “changed everything” when she became a household name and inspired viewers with her accessible approach to cooking.
Child died in 2004. Meryl Streep received an Oscar nod for portraying her in the 2009 comedy “Julie & Julia.”
