I was struck with deep sadness when I learned that Julia Child died. So in honor of the legend she was I’m bring you this site. To learn more about Julia herself check out the link near the bottom of the page called Remembering Julia Child.
Prime Video Cuts – This is my favorite section of the site. This is where you can find video cuts of the show “Lessons with Master Chefs” hosted by Julia. I watched a video on how to make this gorgeous chocolate cake with cook Michel Richard. The videos take you though the complete recipe from start to finish. So there’s no margin for error and you can play it as many times as you want until you get it down. I particularly enjoyed watching the dessert recipes.
There is a wonderful search engine that will help you find what you are looking for. Whether you want to search by food categories like dessert recipes ( I have an awful sweet tooth sometimes) or even main courses. You can also search by chef, series, or ingredients.
Another chef I enjoyed was Jim Dodge, but there are an awful lot of chefs for you to browse through. You can also browse through many different kind of recipes from appetizers to main dishes to sauces and so on and so forth. There is even a section where you can watch cooking techniques.
Back on the Home page if you click Free Samples you will get some recipes the cookbooks of famous chefs. In Meet the Chefs you can read biographies of chefs that you enjoy. Tricks of the Trade is where you can skip right to the technique videos, and learn the secrets that are shared there.
Eater’s Digest is another wonderful section. This is where you can not only get recipes but learn about styles of cooking and styles of food. For instance, read the article on Artisan Baking and you’ll learn all about what bread should be and what bagged mass manufactured white sandwich bread isn’t.
