Juila Child, A Recipe For Greatness

Filmmaker Nora Ephron directs Julie & Julia. She reminds everybody that before there were dipping oils that we see everywhere now, there was butter, now a demonized dairy product.
"I just do not get that at all," Ephron says. After all, Child cooked with butter all the time, and she and her husband, Paul, both lived into their 90s.
"And they drank like fish," she says. "I don't believe that anything has to do with what you eat, if you don't overeat. All these people who think they can cut down on their cholesterol by eating those awful egg-white omelets. There's something I really hate. It is simply not going to make any difference if you have a couple egg yolks in your omelet."
