Julia Child's Heirs Battle Oven Maker
By Kate Schwartz, Newser Staff
Julia Child was many things -- celebrated chef, author, TV star -- but there was one thing she certainly wasn't: a shill. "It was sort of a life philosophy that she had," explains her great-nephew.
Which is why Child never pushed a certain roast pan, a brand of olive oil, or even, notes the Los Angeles Times, cookbooks written by her own friends. And it's fueling a big stink between her heirs and Thermador, the manufacturer of the appliances she used on TV and in her home.
