- Program Number
- Series Description
Premiered October 1983.
A 13 week celebration of the art of good cooking, with emphasis on the bounty of American ingredients. The centerpiece of each program continues to be the preparation of an original Julia menu; the recipes, however, have a distinctly American accent. Built around a weekly dinner party for 10, the setting is a colonial-style mansion just outside Santa Barbara. Viewers join Julia on location for weekly journeys to seek out raw materials and meet some of her colleagues and friends. Julia has invited chefs from this country’s premiere restaurants to share their techniques and specialties with viewers. 13 California vintners join the discussions, offering selections appropriate to that evening’s dinner fare.
See Dial October 1983 for cover story and interview.
