    I love seeing these vintage videos. Thanks for sharing it.

    Maybe this is the first recorded video of a person saying don't put a knife in a dishwasher. Btw, if you are ever in Washington, DC the American History Museum has Julia's actual kitchen on display and you can see what knives, pots, appliances etc she used in her home. I'll try take a picture of her knives when I go back in December.

    f you guys have amazon prime or don't mind paying for "The French Chef" episodes, amazon has all of the episodes available. They are free to stream for prime members I have watched a couple of them.

    Good advice doesn't change. This reminds me of being a kid.

    My mom watched Julia long before me, and she was a Home Ec major in the 70s, so Julia Childs reminds me a lot of my mom, too. I grew up with a set of Sabs and a steel just like that, because Julia told her to!

    The old girl knew a thing or two... Puts Gordon Ramsey's onion cutting to shame.
