A total of nine leading chefs, also including Rick Bayless, Vivian Howard, Sara Moulton, Éric Ripert, Marcus Samuelsson, will appear in the star-studded show.
They will watch an episode of The French Chef and share commentary, their fave moments and memories of the great chef.
The episodes of The French Chef are: “The Whole Fish Story,” “The Good Loaf,” “Your Own French Onion Soup,” “Boeuf Bourguignon,” “The Potato Show,” and “To Roast a Chicken.”
According to Food and Wine, Andrea Downing, co-president of PBS Distribution, said in a statement: “Julia Child pioneered what cooking shows have become today and to get a once-in-a-lifetime look at how she inspired the master chefs of today is truly a treat.”
Dishing with Julia Child will stream on PBS Living and PBS Passport from February 28. It will air on PBS across three Fridays in April.
