The real Julia does Dallas

Meryl Streep seems a cinch to pick up another Oscar nomination for her bravura turn as the late Julia Child in Julie & Julia, currently in theaters.

Still, she's obviously no match for the real deal, who died in 2004. Thanks to KERA-TV (Channel 13) vice president of programming Bill Young for sharing these evocative photos from Child's visit to Dallas a decade or so ago.

The first finds her happily hoisting a longneck at Sonny Bryan's barbecue, with Young pictured on the far left. The second photo, which needs no further introduction, is paired with a picture of Streep as Child. As always, bon appetit!
