"A cookbook is only as good as its poorest recipe." —Chef Julia Child
Celebrate the life and legacy of Julia Child (1912-2004), fondly remembered for introducing French cuisine to American home cooks through her television series – beginning with WGBH’s THE FRENCH CHEF in 1963 – and books.
The film tells two love stories: one between Julia and Paul Child, the other between Julia and French food. Originally broadcast in August 2004, the film features previously unseen photos, including several from Paul Child’s personal archive, granted exclusively to the film’s producers.
Child was a pioneer in public television’s long tradition of cooking programs, revolutionizing the way America cooks, eats and thinks about food.
Recipes with Julia Child:
- Poulet En Cocotte (Whole Chicken Roasted in a Casserole)
- Gratin Dauphinois (Scalloped Potatoes au Gratin)
- Mousseline Au Chocolat (Chocolate Mousse)
