On August 15, legendary Toronto food writer, journalist and cookbook author Marion Kane will release a series of podcasts on her eponymous website. August 15 is the centenary of Julia Child’s birth, and Kane has produced a comprehensive audio ode to her late friend. In the video below, conducted at her home where she showed me her archive of correspondence and photos, Kane speaks about how she met Child, what it was like to be around her and gives Good Food Revolution viewers a sneak peek at what’s in the podcasts.
