Watch The French Chef with Julia Child
- 10 Seasons
Julia Child left an indelible impact on the American culinary scene. The French Chef with Julia Child aired between 1963 to 1973, which captivated American audiences at the time. It has enjoyed an enduring amount of popularity, thanks to some of the concepts that the show introduced. Part of the appeal of this show is that it condensed different types of French recipes into home cooking. For the time of the show, this was a relatively novel concept. Few other cooks had been pushing for the inclusion of French cuisine into the American home cooking repertoire. Julia Child received a Peabody Award in 1964 for the production of the show. The show did include a secondary theme song written by John Morris. The show was also able to earn a Prime Time Emmy Award in 1966. This award was provided in the educational category. The show was in reruns on PBS on 1989 and has since seen air time on other networks as well.
