|Julia Child: The Original French Chef Collection
This special collection of 12 original black-and-white episodes of THE FRENCH CHEF from the 1960s brings Julia into the kitchen to teach cooks of all abilities how to prepare some of her favorite French classics. As Julia herself said, "If I can do it, you can do it...and here's how to do it! Bon appétit!" A cooking legend and cultural icon, Julia Child introduced French cuisine to American kitchens in 1963 with this pioneering series: THE FRENCH CHEF. Unlike anything ever seen on television before, it was entertaining and real in a way that influenced every culinary television program that followed. In her passionate, capable, and approachable way, Julia changed the way Americans cook, eat, and think about food. She was a natural television star, warm and exuberant and ready to share all of the lessons she had learned from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and her years of work on her groundbreaking cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Julia presented the nuances of every recipe while also teaching her audience the basics of French cooking, from the proper way to choose and prepare cuts of meat and how to chop and sauté onions to achieving the perfect simmer and the safest way to flambé. Never afraid to make mistakes on camera, she used them to her advantage to show her viewers how to adapt with confidence. Approximately 6 hours in total on 2 DVDs, this collection includes many fantastic recipes for Starters & Sides, Entrees and Desserts. As seen on public television. These DVDs feature subtitles in English (SDH). The episodes on this DVD collection include occasional audio and video imperfections inherent to the original master tapes. We hope you enjoy these truly classic television programs!

Foodies and budding chefs love the reality show Top Chef, but so do millions of other viewers, as evidenced by Top Chef's position as the number one food show on cable. Season 5 of Top Chef takes place in the food city of New York as well as in New Orleans and pits 17 chefs against each other in a test of culinary skill, creativity, flexibility, and performance under pressure. While the show is all about food, it's also about personalities, and this 14-episode season is full of strong personalities. There's the brashly confident Stefan, hyper Carla, ladies' man Fabio, overachiever Jeff, gay and lesbian "team rainbow," and many others, and everyone's antics in the kitchen, the stew room where they await judgment, and their shared apartment translate into some great entertainment. Host Padma Lakshmi is joined by head judge Chef Tom Colicchio, judges Gail Simmons and Toby Young, and an array of guest judges, including celebrities like Emeril Lagasse, Martha Stewart, Jean-Georges, and Wylie Dufresne. The judges are demanding, exacting, and sometimes downright harsh, but they push each chef to deliver the very best food that he or she can--all in hopes of escaping Padma's dreaded words "please pack your knives and go."
Each episode consists of a quickfire challenge and an elimination challenge. The quickfire challenges test the chefs' culinary techniques and palates as well as their ability to think on their feet and create winning dishes with very little time and some particularly odd ingredients. The elimination challenges give the chefs more time but test their versatility and creativity, requiring them to cater to groups such as rock's Foo Fighters and other Top Chef contestants and highly regarded food legends; to cook in specific styles that may lead them far from their comfort zones; to employ highly exotic ingredients; to make do with severely limited kitchens; or to engage in the highly competitive restaurant wars at the very last moment, among other trials.
Just as entertaining as the food challenges are the unpredictable interactions between contestants, which range from unlikely friendships to romantic liaisons and ugly shouting matches. This fifth season gives rise to several burning questions: can a person get voted out for serving deviled eggs or s'mores in a cooking contest? Is making an ostrich egg omelet original enough to keep a contestant in the competition? Is the Top Chef competition all about food, or does service count, too--and if so, how much does it count? Is this purely a cutthroat competition between chefs, or is there room for compassion and maybe even a little holiday spirit? Bonus features include footage and interviews from inside the eliminated cast house, extended interviews with the top four chefs, some pretty amusing stew room footage, and cooking demonstrations of selected contestants' dishes on "The Wong Way to Cook." The DVD also comes with a cookbook insert that features five recipes from past Top Chef seasons. --Tami Horiuchi

Eighteen more episodes from the groundbreaking TV cooking show recall the warmth and culinary genius of the late Julia Child. Even with her humorous bloopers (intentionally retained), The French Chef was a marvelously entertaining learning experience. Now sample more of Julias classic recipes, from crêpes suzette and omelette gratinée to pâté de champagne and bûche de Noël.
A regular program on WGBH Boston from 1963 to 1972, The French Chef is perhaps best known for its down-to-earth hostess Julia Child with her dry wit and practical approach to "fancy" French cooking. Eighteen classic programs, in black and white and color, feature the ever-practical Julia Child educating viewers in everything from starters and side dishes like braised spinach, shirred eggs, and hollandaise sauce, to main courses like seafood crêpes and braised goose, to breads and desserts like croissants and the exotic gâteau in a cage. Julia Child leads viewers step-by-step through each recipe, imploring budding chefs to use their fingers and hands, let go of their fear of failure, avoid a sense of panic and maintain a sense of humor so that neither the cook nor the soufflé collapses. Helpful tips include advice about preparing dishes ahead of time, how to save a recipe gone awry, and an ever-present sense of humor that includes a waving goose and more than a few chuckles from Julia Child at her own inevitable bloopers. While current recommendations about food safety may necessitate altering some suggestions like defrosting a goose in the sink for 4 hours and modern dietary guidelines might frown upon the use of pork back fat in a terrine or pâté, the majority of these recipes can easily be prepared without alteration today. If you love French food and want to learn how to prepare it yourself, join Julia Child for 18 lessons that are sure to have you cooking up exotic dishes in no time. --Tami Horiuchi
