MOLLY O'NEILL vs. JULIA CHILD:To Whom Would You Turn?????

JC_JOE | Sep 19, 2005 06:28 PM

Julia Child(may she rest in culinary Heaven,as I'm
sure she does)certainly was a true American foodie
icon and absolutely deserves all of the many accolades which she has recieved over her long and fruitful
lifetime.But truth be told,I honestly cannot think of one single recipe of hers which I have felt compelled
to prepare at home.
Molly O'Neill,on the other hand,was,for my money,a
truely indespensable N.Y.Superstar...(all apologies to her brother Paul,but I'm just not a Yankee fan!).Not
only have I saved just about every one of her pages from the Times' Sunday magazine,but I have committed
several dozen to memory and no longer need look them up anymore.
While I miss them both terribly,I really dread not having Molly's assuring guidance in my kitchen every week.Perhaps it was just easier to tear out a page than it was to videotape a show.
Anyone else feel the same sense of loss??And does
anyone know what ever happened to Molly after she left
the Times?Can she still be found at some other venue?
I truely hope she's still alive and cookin!!!!
