Julia Child and Jacques Pepin

Daniel travels to Cambridge, Massachusetts to visit two cooking legends, Julia Child and Jacques Pepin. Although they are two of the most accomplished cooks in the food world, they have some advice for the rest of us. Namely, don't take cooking so seriously! They say that cookbooks, including their latest Julia and Jacques, Cooking at Home (Knopf, September 1999), should be used as a guide, but do what you want in your own kitchen. While in Julia's kitchen, Daniel gets to try Caesar Salad Julia's Style, as well as a Spanish potato omelet, or "tortilla."
