Julia Child, grilled cheese and orange soda

I think I recall a segment on some TV interview where Julia Child made grilled cheese and suggested a pairing with orange soda. Does anyone else remember this and who was the segment with? Thanks.

Julia Child 80th birthday Fanfare for Pots and Pans by the Boston Pops

I am desperate to find a video of Fanfare for Pots and Pans by the Boston Pops for my own personal, private use and enjoyment. It was played only once, during the PBS broadcast of her 80th birthday party, Merci Julia. The Boston Pops used whisks, pots, pans, graters etc to execute this wonderful homage. My hope is that someone has a personal copy that I can access. I am sure this was in the VHS era, before the digital age of recording. Can anyone help?

Need frugal recs for Tokyo

Near the Nippori Train Station, east exit, across the street on the corner is a noodle shop. There is a guy pulling noodles in the window. They speak NO English there and we speak NO Japanese, but they welcomed us anyway. It is a little dive with the waitress yelling the orders to the cook. Without a shadow of a doubt, the best plate of noodles I have ever had. It was a mix of veg, a couple of shrimp, bit of ham in a light soy and stock base. Just wait until you see it and point.

Best white wine with salmon

Yes,I agree about the Pinot and we will be having it to go with the beef tenderloin as well, but I feel somewhat obliged to have a white available too. Thanks.

Best white wine with salmon

I am making a salmon with a cream cheese/dill/lemon spread for a large party. Can anyone suggest a nice white wine for it? So far, I am not happy with chardonnay or pinot grigio. Price point, about $10 a bottle, and I will need about a case, so it needs to be readily available.
