Now this is some amazing footage.  It really gives you a flavor for cuisine and cooking in the 1950s.  It is hard for us to image what it was like then given the way we celebrate celebrity chefs now.  I just interviewed Jacques Pepin recently who has been a master chef for decades and on KQED often.  It is great to see footage of a time like this when Chef Pepin was still honing his skills as well.  Thanks for the post.
