In COOKING WITH MASTER CHEFS, Julia Child visits sixteen nationally acclaimed master chefs in their own kitchens. Each chef demonstrates distinct techniques, regional recipes, and culinary tips which guide home cooks through their favorite recipes.

Expertly preparing each dish and teaching with passion along the way, the master chefs offer the viewer a unique and inspirational learning experience.

"Emeril Lagasse" - In New Orleans, buoyant and light-hearted master chef Emeril Lagasse prepares shrimp étoufée and a colorful crab and crawfish boil. With his passion for New Orleans cooking, Emeril demonstrates the secrets to the best roux and how to mix Creole seasoning.

About the Chef:

“Bam!” Emeril Lagasse, a man with his own spice mix, “Essence of Emeril,” has captured America’s attention by storm with his crazy Cajun/Creole cooking and his top-rated TV shows. This Massachusetts native stumbled upon his passion for rustic low-country crawdads and crab boils after spending many years training in refined restaurants throughout France and the northeastern region of the U.S.

Enthusiastically immersing himself in Louisiana culture, Emeril began combining classical culinary practices with local fare as the chef of Commander’s Palace. His following grew when he opened his own restaurants in New Orleans, Emeril’s and NOLA, and continued to expand with his various satellite restaurants in Las Vegas, Nevada and Orlando, Florida.

Acknowledged for his achievements as a chef, cookbook writer, and television host, the culinary community appreciates this northern transplant as much as the rest of the country.

Above: "Julia Child's legacy to America is felt nowhere more strongly than at PBS," said Pat Mitchell, former President and CEO of PBS. "When it all began on WGBH, Boston's public television station, in 1962, no one had ever done a cooking show on television. But Julia set a standard for far more than a genre that has grown exponentially ever since. She made sophisticated cooking techniques accessible while promoting the art of cooking to men and women alike. She was a funny, witty and debonair character who charmed all who knew her - even if just by her television appearances. We're honored to have had her as part of the PBS family and we will cherish her memory."
