Video: PBS presents Julia Child's 'Remixed' roasted potatoes

In celebration of Julia Child's 100th birthday, PBS Digital Studios has served up a fresh cut of autotune from the 'Icons Remixed'  series.

The latest installment is charming, respectful and mellow, but seems to hint that an edgier, suggestive, and possibly hip-hop version may have existed in an earlier edit of the video by John D. Boswell (aka melodysheep). 

Given how tepid the term "food porn" has become, and knowing what we know about Child's libidinous ways -- which were not glazed over in the late Nora Ephron hit film Julie & Julia -- it seems a kitchen slow jam would not have been in poor taste.
