Joining us on the show this week is Todd Schulkin, executive director of the Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts, who talked about how Julia Child inspired the culinary world to know where your food comes from.

Julia Child is a culinary educator who spent her summers in Santa Barbara, and she became a popular television personality on her series The French Chef. Her legacy on the culinary world remains, inspiring cooking schools like Apples to Zucchini (A to Z) to take part in her mission of food education.

Alexandra visited A to Z Cooking School for Pascale Beale’s “Soufflé Perfection” class, and also spoke with Nancy Martz, executive director of the school, and Jeff King, coordinator of adult cooking classes.

Then, The Indy reporter Rebecca Fairweather explored Terre et Sang in Los Olivos, a vineyard operated by a mother-son duo who share the same passion for grapes and family. 

Rebecca sat down with Duncan and Dalita Harmon to chat about why they call winemaking “a labor of love.”
