As you can tell, one of my favorite things to do is explore different cultures through food, and one of my favorite cultural cuisines is that of the French. There’s so much to appreciate about it — so much history, and so much skill that is required to get it just right.
I’m no chef, but cooking and baking is something that I want to learn more about. I figure the best place to start is with some French recipes. This weekend I chose to make Julia Child’s Quiche Lorraine. It’s butter and bacon on a plate… and maybe now in my heart. But my heart is also full of joy, so it’s worth it.
I also ordered two cookbooks — Julia Child’s “The French Chef Cookbook,” and David Lebovitz “My Paris Kitchen.” I’m really looking forward to see what I can cook up using these.
More to come, friends. À la prochaine!
