Julia shows us an appetizing way of using mushrooms in a brown Madeira sauce, a traditional French recipe that is one of my favorites
About this recipeA delicious dish that Julia says can be used with a piece of filet mignon, or with sautéed chicken livers, or another piece of meat.
Julia Child, we owe you respectThis is a recipe of Julia Child.
I have a great respect for Julia, for the dedication to French Cuisine and her huge work to assemble the French recipes and techniques in her book. She acquired her knowledge while living in Paris and studying at the Cordon Bleu de Paris
Her book, a masterpieceJulia spent many years in Paris and discovered the French food, and upon attending the Cordon Bleu, learned about French cuisine techniques.
After she moved back to the United States, Julia Child wrote her book "Mastering the Art of French Cooking", a masterpiece that is still a best seller that you still can find nowadays in all bookstores in the states. What an impressive undertaking !
|After writing her book, Julia appeared on American television in a series called "The French Chef"|
