Julia Child may not have been a natural-born cook - when she married, she could barely boil an egg. But she fell in love with French food, and soon enrolled at the Cordon Bleu where she learned the great tradition of Classical French cuisine. Today, more than half a century later, she is a cooking legend and cultural icon. Warm and exuberant, Julia and her pioneering public television series, The French Chef, introduced French cuisine to American kitchens stocked with Shake n’ Bake and Tang. In her passionate and sometimes breathless way, Julia forever changed the way we cook, eat, and think about food.
Discover Julia Child as few have seen her before in this one-hour tribute and testament to a great American icon through an interview with Julia herself, filmed in her fabled kitchen, and rare images from the photo collection of Paul Child and from family photo albums.
Plus, enjoy another helping of Julia Child in The French Chef! This special collection also includes twelve episodes from the original French Chef series, including Pâte à Choux, Coq Au Vin, Petits Fours, Quiche Lorraine & Co., and Madeleines and Génoise Jelly Roll. Now chefs of all ages and abilities can share Julia’s love of fine French food and learn to cook some of her most-loved dishes. As Julia herself said, “If I can do it, you can do it…and here’s how to do it!” Bon appetit!
