Cooking legend and cultural icon Julia Child re-introduced French cuisine to American kitchens in 1963 with the pioneering series THE FRENCH CHEF. Unlike anything ever seen on television before, it was entertaining and real in a way that influenced every culinary television program that followed. In her passionate, capable, and approachable way, Julia changed the way Americans cook, eat, and think about food. Julia presented the nuances of every recipe while also teaching her audience the basics of French cooking. Never afraid to make mistakes on camera, she used them to her advantage to show viewers a key to good cooking was confidence. This special collection of six original black-and-white episodes of THE FRENCH CHEF from the 1960s brings Julia back into the kitchen to teach cooks of all abilities how to prepare these French specialties that are still perfect for a dinner party today. As Julia herself said, "If I can do it, you can do it...and here's how to do it! Bon appétit!"
