In this retro Letterman clip, Dave does a delightful cooking segment with Julia Child where everything goes wrong. But it doesn't matter because both of them are hilarious. International Spy, Trailblazing TV Chef, Comedienne—what couldn't that woman do?

The segment was about cooking at first, but only at first. Nothing works, and Julia changes what she's making from hamburger to beef tartare. She then busts out the blow torch and scorches the crap out of the cheese on top, leaving the meat raw underneath. Then she eats it with Dave! I'd like to see Rachael Ray do that!

What a gem!
