Julia Child’s Sautéed Mushrooms in Madeira Sauce2017-08-02
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"

You probably saw the movie about Julia Child "Julie and Julia", starring Meryl Streep et Amy Adams.
To see the movie, you may buy it on DVD for instance HERE
A movie that you must see, I insist !.
Meryl Streep plays Julia Child, and delivers a great acting performance, as always...
The movie shows Julia's life, including her days at the Cordon Bleu Paris
There are other film locations to discover while in Paris : This article talks about those places
Source of the recipeJulia Child's book is a must-have...
I initially thought the book would not be very useful, to be honest. However I changed my mind : it is very useful ! Julia captured the traditional recipes, and this information is important to us, food lovers
