Susannah Winslow, an incredibly talented and creative staff member here at KLRU, made a mouth-watering dinner to celebrate Julia’s 100th birthday! We’re happy to have her thoughts (and the recipes!) to share with you today.
“In my mind, Julia Child has always been and will always be the pinnacle of French cooking. So it’s not surprising that until this weekend, I had never made or followed a Julia Child’s recipe in my life. They just seemed too intimidating, even though the grande dame herself is the one that made French cooking so easily accessible to people like me. In honor of what would be her 100th birthday, I gladly rolled up my sleeves and got to work making a dinner I’m sure Julia would be proud of: moules à la marienière (mussels steamedin white wine) avec les pommes frites (french fries) et pour le dessert, mousse au chocolat (chocolate mousse). In true Julia Child’s fashion, everything turned out marvelous, even though I’m sure I made a few mistakes along the way. Bon Appetit!“
