Julia Child was quirky. Unpolished for television. Irresistibly whimsical—and wholeheartedly devoted to the art of French cuisine. Premiering in 1963, THE FRENCH CHEF taught a nation how to cook well, eat well and drink well, sometimes all at the same time. In 200 informative and unforgettably entertaining episodes, Child changed palates and food preparation habits. In doing so, she singlehandedly paved the way for today’s culinary experts, who sauté and puree on hundreds of cooking shows around the world.
More than 50 years after its debut, the series remains important television, which is why today’s most popular chefs, celebrities and Julia Child devotees have joined PBS to share personal insights and engage in lighthearted conversations as they screen—and delight in—Child’s most-beloved episodes.
