Julia Child: Still Teaching After All These Years

This summer I purchased a DVD of Julia Child's TV series THE FRENCH CHEF as part of my ongoing "adventures in cooking." While watching it tonight and soaking up Julia's wisdom on deglazing, peeling onions, and thickening gravy, I wondered what Julia would have thought if she knew when she filmed these shows that she would still be teaching people to cook over four decades later!

The second volume in THE FRENCH CHEF series will be released this November. They are reasonably priced at $21.58 (no tax or shipping) considering that each set contains several hours of Julia's cooking lessons.

Speaking of Julia Child, the newly published book Julie and Julia has an interesting premise: the author set out to make every recipe from Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking and blogged about the experience as it progressed. The book is officially due on September 28 but Amazon appears to have the book currently available for shipping.
