About the Author
Julia Child was born in Pasadena, California. She graduated from Smith College and worked for the OSS during World War II in Ceylon and China, where she met Paul Child. After they were married they lived in Paris, where Ms. Child studied at the Cordon Bleu and taught cooking with Simone Beck and Louisette Bertholle, with whom she wrote the first volume of Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961).
In 1963 Boston’s WGBH launched The French Chef television series, which made Julia Child a national celebrity, earning her the Peabody Award in 1965 and an Emmy in 1966. Her subsequent public television shows—Julia Child & Company (1978), Julia Child & More Company (1980), Cooking with Master Chefs (1993), In Julia’s Kitchen with Master Chefs (1995), Baking with Julia (1996), and her one-on-one collaboration with Jacques Pépin, Julia and Jacques Cooking at Home (1999)—were all accompanied by books of the same names. The Way to Cook, her magnum opus, was published in 1989, and in 2000 she gave us Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom, a distillation of her years of cooking experience. Her memoir, My Life in France, was published posthumously in 2006. She died in 2004.

She is able to pick up all the elements of classic French cookery, and make us feel 'hey I can do that too.' Of course Child pioneered bringing French cooking ideals to America, overcoming hurdles and challenges of the 'old school elite' in France. Yet she relates it all with simplicity, warmth and great encouragement.
In this DVD set Julia teaches cooking skills so effectively because she shares her passion and commitment - this all flows effortlessly from the core of her being with great warmth and charm. She serves culinary excellence because she WANTS to, and this is a great lesson for doing anything with passion.
I think if you invite friendly Julia Child to share her wisdom, you will compelled to watch her interesting lessons, and then you will be running to the grocer and kitchen with a newly fired passion to create - and enjoy - great-tasting and soulful food.
