Did You Know?

Julia Child:Now, you can tell when they're ready by poking them with your finger. And if it's resilient, they're done. If it's still squashy like the raw breast, it isn't done. And if it's hard, it is, uh, it's overdone which is too bad.See more »

Did Julia Child really say "You're alone in the kitchen!" when she dropped a roast while filming?

Julia Child, the Pioneer!, 18 October 2009
Author: ( from United States

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.
