Hours of Julia Child’s cooking shows are available online for free! PBS has a website devoted to Julia Child’s show Cooking with Master Chefs, as well as to other programs like Baking with Julia and Cooking in Concert with Jacques Pépin.

You can see Julia making scones with Marion Cunningham, Chocolate Ruffle Cake with Alice Medrich, and Green Olive Tapenade with Alice Waters. Many more chefs put in an appearance during these shows: Emeril, Martha, Jeremiah Tower, Nancy Silverton – the list goes on!

There are also recipes online with screenshots to illustrate complicated steps. It’s a beautiful, inspiring resource and addictively entertaining. Check it out – you will probably find even more uses for a pound of French butter!
