The Cruelty of the HBO Max Series’ James Beard Episode
Okay I am SO late to the game here, but I only recently discovered that you had a Substack!
I was told the same Marion Cunningham story most likely from the same source. Or possibly even La Cunningham herself in one of her more lucid moments (but I doubt it). Thank you for laying out this episode so clearly for me so that I don't have to watch it.
I hope you tackle her French cooking buddy next.
Suffice to say, I am deliciously charmed to have discovered your blog. Which is to say all of it is achingly beautiful and right up my alley.
Swinging by to say 'hi'.
