If you were thinking now would be a good time to have a little Julia Child back in our lives, you’re in luck. The late master of French cooking, who helped usher in the age of celebrity chefs and popular cooking television, will be back on PBS in a new tribute entitled “Dishing with Julia Child.”
The six-part series, which begins streaming later this month, captures some of her most iconic episodes and features notable chefs like José Andrés, Vivian Howard, Carla Hall, Jacques Pépin, Éric Ripert, and others sharing their thoughts, anecdotes, and memories of the inimitable TV chef as each episode (and recipe) unfolds.
Each installment of “Dishing with Julia” will focus on a single episode of her landmark show, The French Chef—which aired on WGBH from 1963 to 1973—including “The Whole Fish Story,” “The Good Loaf,” “Your Own French Onion Soup,” “Boeuf Bourguignon,” “The Potato Show,” and “To Roast a Chicken”.
You can stream Dishing with Julia Child on PBS Living (the networks streaming channel), which is available on Prime Video channels and Apple TV, as well as on PBS Passport beginning Feb. 28.
