From the Back Cover
Warm and exuberant, Julia was a natural television star. In 1963, she appeared on public television in "The French Chef," a cooking series unlike anything yet seen on TV. Scooping up a spilled potato pancake or coaxing a reluctant soufflé, Julia was not afraid of making mistakes. Soon a nation fed on Shake n' Bake and Tang would be experimenting with quiche Lorraine and boeuf bourgignon and cooking would become a national pastime.
This is the story of Julia's two great loves-love for her husband Paul and for cooking. Through an interview with Julia herself, filmed in her fabled kitchen, and rare images from the photo collection of Paul Child and from family photo albums, Julia Child is revealed as few have seen her before in this tribute and testament to a great American icon.

How like autumn's warmth
Is Julia's face
And how like summer's heat
Is her embrace
Wherein at last
She melts my frozen earth
This is not a COOKING Session DVD. It is a documentary- a PBS American Masters Production, which gives excellent insight into her life. It's mostly personal from childhood through college and her discovery of herself and later-in-life her love for cooking. It is wonderful to see her with her beloved husband Paul and the behind the scenes clips from her many PBS -TV Series. If you are a Julia fan, looking for more insight into what made her tick- this is a well-done film and won't disappoint. Ms. Julia is captivating and inspiring that life is meant to be loved, lived and enjoyed and if it's not FUN- why bother? She remains a marvel- Bon Appite indeed!
