The kind of days where you burn the garlic bread beyond recognition, drop a pan of bubbly lasagna onto the floor, and turn the kitchen into a culinary disaster area just before the guests arrive.
Luckily, for most of us, we don’t have to experience that feeling on television, as the great Julia Child did in her funny and remarkable 1987 appearance on David Letterman below where she tries to cook a burger on live TV but the stove doesn’t work.
Tomorrow, would have been Julia Child’s 98th birthday, a cooking pioneer who inspired millions around the world to cook fearlessly for their friends and family.
You can also watch this humorous video featuring Julia Child on the David Letterman show here.
