Typical of the transfers from WGBH programming available on DiscoVision, the colors are bright and sharp. The audio
is exceptionally clean with only minor background noise. As with most of the Julia Child programs, it appears
this was rushed through production, with portions appearing scripted and at times Franco and Margaret seem to be
"winging" it. I got a good chuckle hen Franco spends ponders the amount of salt to add to boiling water only to be
told by Margaret that she had already done it.
Some copies have a mastering error at frame 39,972 which cause the player to invoke an auto stop. Pressing Play
proceeds past the error. This program is also known to be the actual contents of all copies of A Roman
Classic television like Abruzzi Specialties never seem to get a second chance. The title has never been
re-released on LaserDisc.
