    one of the great joys of my life was cooking dinner for her and Jacque Pepin very early in my career. They were two of the most gracious people I have ever met. love Julia
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    My parents grew up with Julia Child around and made many of her dishes. They even have an autographed cookbook from her. She was very nice to them. I watched her shows growing up. Very nice post. Once my parents made the Grand Marnier Souffle. It was a lot of work and my grandma stopped by uninvited tasted it said it was perfumy and continued to eat it until it was all gone. It hadn't been offered and my parents worked very hard on it.

    Thanks for posting. I think her approach to knives was way beyond most folk's back in her day.

    I heard all of this near verbatim when I was a kid from my Dad and Mom. She was great.

    I wonder how many women were put off of sharp knives by the way that she was warning about various techniques- "don't do this or you will cut you're hand off", or "don't do this or you will cut you're hand down to the bone", or "don't do that or you will cut you're hand in half"!

    Probably no more than there were men put off sharp knives. It was balanced by the bazillion times we heard that you're more likely to cut yourself with a dull knife than a sharp one.

    The above video has been taken down on you tube a real shame i will try to find it some where else
    I am 75% sure that it was from the french chef/ french onion soup/ volume 5/ EP 1
    IF any one has the set you can confirm that .
    or you can buy episodes from I Tunes or Amazon for $2.
