  1. I’ve never seen Julia Child in action before. I’ve watched the Meryl Streep movie, and now seeing her, the real Julia, I can see how much of a genius Meryl is! Spot on!!!

  2. I just recently started baking and now I feel a sense of guilt about how I reacted when my mom and grandma would watch Julia. She is absolutely adorable.

  3. Hi, there. I watched the film Julia and Julia with Rachel Adams Stanley tucci and Meryl Streep. I have sensed watched the French bread making one and the French onion soup making one. I hope to watch more, if I find them on YouTube. G . A small God. Goofus. Allegedly.

  4. "Bread…like God…has three parts." Oh, Julia…miss you…you're in the kitchen with Jesus now…(and God the Father…and the Holy Spirit, too…)

  5. She was actually a professionally trained chef. The TV show seems to have presented her as a home grown house wife who liked to cook. Maybe that angle is the reason her show was so popular for such a long time.

  6. Ah yes! I slammed my dough too. It makes airy doughs. I love Julia. I also get flustered at times when cooking and trying to explain a process 😂 I totally get her. You know what you are doing is just hard to explain it 😂

  7. Aww did she have asthma or C.O.P.D? She sounds like she’s struggling to breath 😔 she really was an incredible woman though and I love running into her videos as they are so beautifully done and full of useful information!

  8. This produced some of the best bread I have ever eaten, on the first try. Crispy, crackly crust; meaty and chewy inside. It's not labor intensive at all, but you need to allow at least 8 hours from start to finish. My winter room temp is 65, so the first rise was 3.75 hours, the second 2 hours, and the last 1.5 hours. Instead of squirting the water, I filled my brownie pan with water and put it in the oven during the preheat, then left it in. Baked at 450 for 25 minutes, then as Julia said, turned off the oven and left the loaves in another 5. They indeed cracked as they came out of the oven. I left them sit for 15 minutes before devouring.

  9. OMG I miss her and her cooking show 😢 as a kid I watched her on PBS every Saturday and Justin Wilson. I got my love of cooking from them and my grandma and Aunt. All these food Network self called chefs are worthless and know nothing about cooking except to throw together some ungodly combinations of food that a dog wouldn't eat and call it gourmet. YUCK. And don't get me started on that nitwit Rachel Ray. Pittiful excuses for cooks
