Julie Child: cook, spy, and biologist

No joke:  you might have heard of this famous chef through the 2009 movie Julie and Julia and so you might be familiar with her expertise in French cuisine.  She also served during World War II dealing with sensitive documents and even helped with research into shark repellant.

This video once was used in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's "Life in The Universe" gallery (it's since been closed and the video is no longer available there).  Some clever soul saw a great opportunity to make a joke regarding "primordial soup" by having it explained by a world-famous chef!
