At the Stonewall Kitchen Cooking School, we're celebrating the legacy of Julia Child with a full week of classes dedicated to cooking scrumptious French food. We held our first Julia Child week last year, and it was so immensely popular we've decided to do it again. And based on this year - all of the classes sold out - we'll probably do it again next year. It's a lot of fun and a lot of work. To prepare the meals for each class, it takes pretty much every single one of the pans the Cooking School has. The School also goes through twice as much butter during Julia Child week (about 288 lbs!) compared to what they use in an average week.
Here's a sample menu from one of the classes:
Smoked salmon, fennel, and goat cheese crostini
Fish souffle baked on a platter with sabayon
Poached chicken breast around asparagus with wine sauce, sauteed potatoes, browned brussels sprouts with cheese
Tarte aux fraises (fresh strawberry tart)
Julia Child was born on August 15th in 1912. Over the course of her 91 year life, Julia would revolutionize cooking in America, introducing French cuisine to the American home cook, inspiring countless chefs, and looming large as a television personality.
