Honestly, not a good reference to learn French cooking IMO. I know she's beloved in the U.S., but being French, I'm shocked at how she misrepresents French dishes in some of her publications and videos.
Go to the source, and look for videos or books by great French chefs: Joël Robuchon is a sure bet, so is Jacques Pépin. Escoffier, Alain Ducasse, Pierre Gagnaire, Paul Bocuse, George Blanc, Bernard Loiseau, etc.... If I were you, I would research famous French chefs and do a bit of reading on them, see which one inspires you the most, and maybe get one of his books, or look up some of their videos etc.. before you know it you'll have a better picture of what is French cuisine.
