"A party without cake is just a meeting."
Julia Child (American chef & cookbook author ~ 1912 - 2004)
She was unmistakable.
She stood 6'2" tall.
And her voice was just as unmistakable.
In her own bubbly way, Julia Child brought French cooking to the American table through her cookbook 'Mastering the Art of French Cooking' and through her television cooking show.
Included here are Ciné-Feuilles - follow-along question sheets - for two films about this icon of cookery:
* Julia Child ! America's Favorite Chef (a PBS biography)
* Julie & Julia (with Meryl Streep)
Each Ciné-Feuille has 20 follow-along questions in English all on one page.
Having students select from multiple choice answers allows more
time for their eyes to stay on the film and not spend it looking
down writing out answers and, thus, not miss important
moments in the film.
Answer keys are provided for both films.
Also included is a three-page overhead outlining Julia's background and a list of further resources should you want to expand on the topic.
These films can be used in class during a food or nutrition unit or as a substitute lesson plan (or emergency lesson plan) in your absence.
