I do NOT know how to cook. I inquired at our local vocational school to take a "prep" class (to learn how to cut food but NOT my fingers), but it was extremely expensive. The movie "Julie & Julia" sparked my interest in finding out more about Julia Child. My husband and I compromised by ordering these DVD's.
Well, I am proud to say that not only have I cooked the chicken "stew" (coco van/friccasse - spelling?) but I am not as "scared" to cook anymore.
I wish I had met Ms. Child while she was still alive. These DVD's really show her humor and ability to make mistakes and not take them seriously. She is ALWAYS smiling, speaking exactly what is going on in her brain as she is preparing any of the dishes, and overall just a great instructor.
Some of the episodes are in black & white, and some are in color. They are the original episodes, so it just depends on when they were originally shot.
I may not cook my way through both volumes of her cookbook, but my husband will be coming home to some yummy food.
I highly recommend this DVD set. Bon appétit!
