This may be shocking but I always heard of Julia Childs, just never knew who she truly was. Like many women I believe she became an all time classic in America because we can relate to her. She was fun, witty, and loved food ( not to mention many of us envy her marriage...I myself am too young but if I ever get a guy like that..man oh man...my life will be complete).
The fact her book was based off french cuisine was a coincidence as for the past year I have had a obsession with the art of gastronomic cuisine. This has only furthered my interest to whip something up today in honour of the french... let's see what my bank account will allow in my kitchen.
I will update with my findings at the end of the night .
