Julia Child changed how house wives prepared and cooked meals for centuries. The game changing book ‘Mastering the Art of French Cooking’ has become an icon of home chefs everywhere. Although her recipes are very difficult to master, the end result is always an amazing dish that has only one word to describe it, ‘Yum’.
My husband, being the amazing man that he sometimes is, gave me this famous book for my 35th birthday. I am very scared to try and conquer such a THICK book, but Marshall got me this book to learn how to cook from the master herself. So… I have decided to cook like a master!
Before I continue on about creating these amazing dishes, I do want to issue a statement: Tread lightly into the world of cooking with Julia Child. Her recipes take days to study and understand. With a master chef as a husband, I do have the advantage of his help when things begin to go wrong, which happens more often than I like to admit. Even with his help, I still make many mistakes.
I will be trying to create very difficult French dishes, and I want to share these experiences with you all. I won’t be giving you the actual recipe, just my experiences doing them, and any changes I made.
