PBS is having a marathon of The French Chef shows today! Julia Child is a delight! What a difference in comparison to today’s food shows.
Perfection is the most important aspect of current (highly edited) cooking shows.
Take the “Next Food Network Star” – the contestants have to perform flawlessly or they will be scolded. I don’t think Julia Child would make it past week one on The Next Food Network Star. She’d be criticized for her clumsy performance!
But her charming imperfection was what made her show so alluring. She was an experienced chef/cook, but she made you feel like she was just like us, fumbling our way in the kitchen!
I love her! God Bless Julia Child! Thankfully we still have access to her past shows!
