Its time to cook French, Julia Child style

As I mentioned yesterday while reading My Life in France by Julia Child made me hungry for French food, croissants, baguettes, fromage (dang, can't eat that brie) and macarons. 
Julia Child was known for her great recipes without them being intimidating, she did say after all, "no one is born a great cook, one learns by doing." 
So that is what I intend to do for a few Wednesdays on this blog learn some of her recipes by doing. A few of the classic Julia Child recipes that I will make are:
 beef bourguignon.

coq au vin

potato leek soup

omelette roulee

cherry clafouti

So 5 Wednesdays of French technique a la Julia Child!
Bon Appetit!

I love the book My Life in France! I have all her books and cookbooks. The Appetite for Life is another awesome book! I made the beef bourguignon and it was amazing! I am doing a monthly baking series out of the Baking with Julia cookbook on my youtube channel! All her cookbooks have a ton of great recipes! Enjoy!
