Product Description

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.

Format: DVD
Julia is an absolute genius. I cook alot and some of the great tips in the dvd have been passed down to me from my mom. But, there were so many more. Obviously, the recipes are outdated in terms of fat/salt content. But just watching Julia in action and how she handles the food is worth the price. The companion book is wonderful and organized. I love this set.

Amazingly, Julia Child is able to be many things - master chef, charming presenter, and inspiration.

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.

Bon appetit!

As usual Julia is a joy to watch. Her instructions are thorough and if you miss something while watching there is a booklet included. I am learning to cook the right way and enjoying it.

Overall, she shows good tips and techniques for the kitchen, as well as great recipes. Just go lighter on the oil, butter, and cream!.

It's like having your own private cooking tutor. This DVD isn't about recipes, it's about the countless cooking tips that you would never learn if someone didn't show you. Julia Child shows you. I am on my way to being a much better cook because of these six hours of in depth training. I'm loving this DVD set, and I'm loving what I'm cooking.
