More than 50 years after its debut, The French Chef remains important television. That’s why today’s most popular chefs, celebrities and Julia devotees have joined PBS to share personal insights and engage in light-hearted conversations as they screen and delight in Julia’s most-beloved episodes.

About the Show 
Premiering in 1963, The French Chef taught a nation of Shake ‘n Bakers who didn’t know their Boeuf Bourguignon from their Bouillabaisse how to cook well, eat well and drink well. Sometimes all at the same time. In 200 informative and unforgettably entertaining episodes, Julia Child changed palates and food preparation habits. In doing so, she singlehandedly paved the way for today’s culinary experts, who sauté and puree on hundreds of cooking shows around the world.
