Julia Child, the Pioneer!
Let's face it, if there were any instructional cooking shows on television before Julia Child, we probably don't know about it. Julia Child's emergence as a television pioneer is now being appreciated in part to a successful film that features Meryl Streep playing the legend. Until now, I didn't appreciate Julia Child as much but now I'm more curious than ever about her life. She was older than most people and she wasn't born cooking. She lived a privileged life with cooks in her home. In this series, she brings her world knowledge of cooking where she studied at the Cordon Bleu cooking school in Paris, France and where she co-authored the masterpiece, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" with two French chefs as well. Anyway, this show is about her and you just fall in love with her watching it. I love how she displayed the chickens and explained each one. She has fun with cooking and that's a good thing as Martha Stewart would say.
