We celebrate Julia Child's birthday this week, listening to some early Splendid Table interviews with the grand lady. Ted Allen joins us as our celebrity stumpmaster in another round of Stump the Cook, and David Leite returns with a fresh look at a European favorite, Nutella. Chinese chef and scholar Ken Hom gives us a culinary tour of China.

Here are some of Memphis's best vegetables, listed on a daily-printed menu that offers a choice of five entrees and eighteen to twenty side dishes, including paradigmatic buttered squash, luxurious corn pudding fresh tomatoes in season, and whole baked sweet potatoes. For dessert: some of the best cream pies anywhere.
