Julia Child's Best Bites

(Rochester, NY) – She was quirky. Unpolished for television. Irresistibly whimsical — and wholeheartedly devoted to the art of French cuisine. Premiering in 1963, Julia Child's The French Chef taught a nation of Shake ‘n Bakers who didn’t know their Boeuf Bourguignon from their Bouillabaisse how to cook well, eat well and drink well. More than 50 years after its debut, The French Chef remains important television. That’s why today’s most popular chefs, celebrities and Julia devotees have joined PBS to share personal insights and engage in light-hearted conversations as they screen — and delight in — Julia’s most-beloved episodes. Julia Child's Best Bites premieres Monday, March 2 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

PBS has always offered programming with good taste. Now, along with a feast of celebrity chefs and food experts like Martha Stewart, Jacques Pepin, Vivian Howard, Marcus Samuelsson, Jose Andres, Eric Ripert, Rick Bayless and other surprise special guests we celebrate a series with great taste.
