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.

"Amy Ferguson-Ota" - Amy Ferguson-Ota was the first female executive chef at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Hawaii. Original member of the Hawaii Regional Cuisine movement, Amy's experience, credentials and awards place her amongst the finest chefs in the world.


From her home kitchen in Hawaii, she prepares a green papaya salad with a Thai vinaigrette, wok-seared ono (fish) served with a banana curry, plus a steamed banana side dish.

"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."
