Story by Theresa Curry
Remember Graham Kerr? The irrepressible Englishman was one of the first celebrity television cooks. His “Cooking in Concert” shows with the aging but still hilarious Julia Child are as funny as they are instructive. I especially like one where they debone and cook a duck while talking about the joylessness of modern cuisine, Kerr’s cheery banter a wonderful counter for Julia’s loopy humor. For his own show, “The Galloping Gourmet,” he came on stage by running and jumping over a chair.
