This 90-minute DVD celebrates Julia Child’s remarkable contribution to the American palate and lifestyle. On one level it is a heartfelt tribute to Julia’s culinary wit and wisdom; on another, it is a composite of her favorite recipes and techniques as demonstrated by Julia on-air from 1963 to 1999. The show features an introduction by Julia herself and personal anecdotes and commentary from her renowned colleagues and fans: Jacques Pepin, Charlie Gibson, Martha Stewart, Emeril Lagasse, Jasper White, Alice Waters, and Thomas Keller. Classic television clips from the most memorable of Julia’s cooking demonstrations – including the long missing first episode of The French Chef – show the best of Julia’s 40 years of public television cooking. JULIA CHILD’S KITCHEN WISDOM, featuring our most enduring public television personality, will evoke humorous memories and provide spirited entertainment for her generations of viewers.

Julia Child has given us answers to these and other questions in the ten masterful volumes she has publishedover the past 40 years. But which book do you go to for which solution? Now, in this little volume, you can find the answers immediately.

Information is arranged according to subject matter, with ample cross-referencing. How are you going to cook that small rib steak you brought home? You'll be guided to the quick saute as the best and fstest way. And once you've masteree this recipe, you can apply the technique to chop, chicken, or fish, following Julia's careful guidelines.

And here is equally essential information about soups, vegetables, and eggs, and for baking breads and tarts. It's all waiting for you in this delicious, priceless, comforting compendium of Julia's kitchen wisdom.

Part of what makes Julia Child such an icon is that she can describe a complicated dish, and in the next breath convince us to make it. Classic Chocolate Mousse, Sabayon, Scalloped Potatoes Savoyarde, and Butterflied Leg of Lamb sound manageable when they follow recipes for Roast Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, and Scrambled Eggs. And with Child's help, they are. "Quick, snappy answers" for both basic and complicated cooking questions make this a work we'll never outgrow. And if Julia can use a cheat sheet, so can we! Fans of Child will love that her personality shows through in comments like, "Don't crowd the pan... or you'll be sorry," and, to introduce her Basic Vinaigrette Dressing, I use the proportions of a very dry martini." Eight pages of photos taken by her husband, Paul, including one of Child with the famous dancing goose, make this even more of a treasure."
