Who doesn’t love Julia Child? She’s smart, silly, culinary, and creative. Her book Mastering the Art of French Cooking is a cornerstone of Franco-American cooking. But occasionally it is through parody that we can really get in touch with such a culinary idol. Here’s a little video to brighten up your week: Dan Aykroyd as Julia Child making a chicken. Feeling inspired by the video? Cook up a chicken of your very own and don’t forget to “Save the liver!”

Some favorite chicken recipes:

Judy Roger’s Zuni Cafe Roasted Chicken (and bread salad)

Yotam Ottolenghi’s Chicken and Cardamom Rice

And of course, Julia Child’s Roast Chicken
