Dishing with Julia is a new six-part series featuring nine prominent chefs who look back at some of the beloved episodes of Julia Child's iconic cooking show from the 60s, The French Chef.
The show pays tribute to the great French chef known as the pioneer of the modern TV cooking show format, whose programme aired between 1963 to 1973 and inspired many home cooks to discover the joys of cooking.
The six episodes of the new show take on popular Julia Child classics, divided into “The Whole Fish Story,” “The Good Loaf,” “Your Own French Onion Soup,” “Boeuf Bourguignon,” “The Potato Show,” and “To Roast a Chicken.”
It works a bit like chefs' reactions on YouTube, as nine of the world's famous chefs - José Andrés, Rick Bayless, Carla Hall, Vivian Howard, Sara Moulton, Jacques Pépin, Éric Ripert, Marcus Samuelsson, and Martha Stewart - watch the original cooking show and share commentary, favourite moments, and fond memories.
The new show is scheduled to air on February 28 on PBS Living.
In the meantime, here's the French Onion Soup episode from The French Chef to check out if you hadn't seen it before - sure, the quality is grainy, but her cooking tips are still top-notch and will have you running out to grab a few kilos of onions, presto.
