Julia Child Gets Auto-Tuned to Celebrate Her 100th Birthday

Posted on

We knew she could cook – but who knew she could sing?

In honor of the late Julia Child‘s birthday – she would have turned 100 on Aug. 15 – the folks at PBS have remixed and auto-tuned a series of clips of the celebrated cook roasting, basting and frosting.

The result? A delightful (and very musical) confection that may have you tapping your foot along as Child chops.

In the clip (watch it below), she “sings” about hot chocolate truffles, the key to a healthy and balanced diet and even shares a recipe or two.

Recently, another beloved PBS fixture – Mr. Rogers – got the auto-tune treatment in a funny video.

Child, who is recognized and celebrated for bringing French cooking to America in her debut cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking and on television, died in 2004, just two days before her 92nd birthday.

She was memorably parodied in the ’70s by Dan Aykroyd on Saturday Night Live, then affectionately portrayed on film by Meryl Streep in 2009’s Julie & Julia.
