Of course Julia Child did it better...not only better than Jeff Smith, but any chef since, maybe with the exception of Jacques Pepin. And to quote The Frug, "Frugal doesn't mean cheap. Frugal means that you don't waste anything." I watched his show when it aired back in the 80s and enjoyed it very much. I even bought two of his cookbooks full price at a book store. For me to do that means something, because I am cheap. I've made several of his recipes and they came out very well. His friendly, open personality came thru on his show. Unlike some chefs nowadays, he connected with his viewers. I wish PBS would run his shows again.
