This week on Inside Julia’s Kitchen, we go behind the scenes of “Julia,” the new HBO Max TV show inspired by Julia’s rise to fame and her long-running television series, “The French Chef.” Host Todd Schulkin talks to actress Fiona Glascott, who portrays Julia’s long-time editor, Judith Jones, and Daniel Goldfarb, who helped bring Julia’s story to the small screen. Fiona and Daniel share their perspectives on Julia’s legacy, when the show veers from the truth, and of course, the food. Plus, we get a double Julia Moment.
