Good-humored as well as no-nonsense on the air, Child broadened her culinary expertise rapidly through the years, soon leaving eager viewers in suspense as to whether she would perform a perfect pea soup, mess around with moussaka or titillate with a toasted apricot meringue. Beginning in 1980 she hosted a regular segment on ABC's "Good Morning America" and her domination of the world of un-fast food was insured with a series of best-selling cookbooks and videotapes. Dan Aykroyd's memorable spoof of Child's unflappable gentility (even when bleeding to death) was a high point in the hilarious "Saturday Night Live" skits of the 70s and 80s.
