julia wannabe

I received both volumes of Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking for Christmas and I can't wait to dive into them. I want to make a few nice meals in the upcoming weeks when Brad and I are off work for the holidays. The Boeuf Bourguignon is at the top of my list. Does anyone have other suggestions?

try Poulet au Porto. (Chicken in red wine). I love it.

So glad you have these books- I think you'll enjoy their textbook style and attention to detail! Have fun!

Fun! I have her "Kitchen Wisdom" book and I love using it in the Winter. Her steamed artichokes with hollendaise is over the top and perfect for a fancy meal with friends! Have so much fun cooking, her recipes are amazing, even if you cut a little bit of the butter she prescribes.
