entertaining and instructive
6 April 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I recently rented a 3 DVD set of Julia Child's cooking program broadcast originally on the Boston PBS station (WGBH). Each disc has 6 shows, each lasting about 30 minutes. The early programs are in black and white but the later ones are in colour, including the one in which she describes the difference between various chickens. Child has an easy manner on the screen and watching these shows reaffirms how great an actress Meryl Streep is: her take on Child is perfect (in Julie and Julia). While one may not be tempted to make all the dishes that Julia demonstrates, viewers who are interested in cooking will learn something from each show and may be willing to try at least one of them.
