Editorial Reviews

Contains two 3-disc sets: THE FRENCH CHEF WITH JULIA CHILD: Cooking legend and cultural icon Julia Child, along with her pioneering public television series, The French Chef, introduced French cuisine to American kitchens. In her passionate and sometimes breathless way, Julia forever changed the way we cook, eat, and think about food. Entertaining, fun, and real in a way that influenced every television cooking program that followed, The French Chef embraced Julia's passion for food and teaching and reflected her joie de vivre: "If I can do it, you can do it...and here's how to do it!" Now chefs of all ages and abilities can share Julia's love of fine French food and learn to cook some of her most-loved dishes with this special collection of 18 episodes from her original series, The French Chef. In her signature style and with bloopers intact, Julia demonstrates such classic recipes as boeuf bourguignon from her debut show, salade Nicoise, bouillabaisse a la Marseillaise, mousseline au chocolat, and many more delicious dishes. Bon appetit! Special DVD features include downloadable recipes from Julia Child's classic The French Chef Cookbook, and a bilbliography . Screen format: 4 x 3 Full Screen. THE FRENCH CHEF WITH JULIA CHILD 2: Prepare to enjoy eighteen of Julia Child's kitchen classics in a sumptuous second collection from her pioneering cooking show, The French Chef. Warm and exuberant, Julia was a natural television star, whether scooping up a spilled potato pancake or coaxing a reluctant souffle, This special collection presents 18 episodes from her groundbreaking series. In her signature style and with bloopers intact, Julia demonstrates such classic recipes as crapes suzette, omelette gratinee, pate de campagne, buche de Noel and many more. Bon appetit!

If you are a fan of Julia Child then this is the product for you. My husband and I laugh so much while viewing the old tv shows of "The French Chef", and we use them to supplement our cooking from "Mastering the Art of French Cooking." It helps to see exactly how the recipes are completed. It seems so easy when you see Julia do it!

Couldn't resist buying this set, both as homage and for genuine interest. The set is simply a compilation of Good 'Ol Julia in her honest, straightforward, and very much "one-of-us" glory. I had only a kid's recollection of the shows when they were first aired; I was a pre-teen back then. You have got to love this woman, with her all-too-often caricatured voice and style. It's hard to believe what you are seeing is the original, not the staged. I watched every episode in the compilation and thoroughly enjoyed each one for its facts, mistakes, the food and the foibles. Well worth the investment. The only thing I would have liked better was if the episodes were in historical order. They jump around from the novice TV star to the Grand Dame, and then back again. I found the earlier the show, the more the entertainment value. She was so much herself and only wanted to share what she love most - unlike most of today's cooking shows with gimmicks, shtick, and scripts with every breath timed to cadence. Don't approach the viewing and expect the glitzy overdone Food Network of today. Her shows then would not have ever made it off the editing room floor. Enjoy them for what they were, the start of something very, very big for all of us foodies.

I am so glad that I purchased this 6 DVD set. It is really great to see these old shows with Julia herself, at her best. Viewing these DVDs is like stepping back in time and enjoying every minute of it. These classic episodes are very entertaining, funny and educational. Julia does it for real, including her mistakes and bloopers, just as they happened. Her famous voice, her method of cooking, the old black and white episodes, all add up to make this collection precious to own. Even more surprising, was the low purchase price from Amazon.
As Julia herself would say, "Bon Appetit!" These are DVDs that I will watch many times in the future.

I grew up watching Julia Child. It was fun watching her back then and it is great being able to watch her now. Nothing has changed. I am still learning and relearnig and I am still laughing at the errors and accidents. Great fun and a learning experience.

As of 8/25/2013, an AMZ customer could get these two sets separately for about $20 apiece, and free Prime shipping. Check it out before buying! Whatever the price when you order it ought to be better than this!!!!!

This DVD set is a great reminder of just how wonderful Julia was in front of the camera. We all gained by her transfer of cooking skills. Good quality DVD also.

This is a great program! Time-tested and very entertaining. Unfortunately, the DVDs we received skip at various spots. Otherwise, this is an excellent purchase.
