I have seen several of these episodes on public television, I am sure you will love this DVD - I bet you are on the couch watching it right now.

I watched one episode yesterday, but didn't watch the entire set as I headed out to see Dreamgirls the UPTOWN...It's like crack I can't get enough! Have to give myself another week and go again.

But back to Julia...Once I've seen a good selection of the episodes, I'll come back on here with some comments. But so far...LOVE IT!

Have fun cooking with Julia. I want to see some yummy pictures of the creations you learn to make.

After watching a few with him, I have to say it is indeed very enjoyable. She's so REAL and unhibited - I can see why she has legions of fans. What a charming woman!

What a wonderful gift to yourself! I love Julia, but I keep thinking of the old SNL skit where she was played by Dan Ayckroyd ("Oh dear, I've cut the *dickens* out of my finger!")

BTW, got a great book called "The United States of Arugula" as a Christmas gift - it's about how the US has evolved into a nation of gourmands. Lots of history about Julia Child, since she was one of the "holy trinity" (along with James Beard and Craig Claiborne) who first popularized good eating.
