Barbara, nice to meet you! I just wanted to say kudos to you for attempting Beef Wellington. My husband and I have been experimenting with Julia Child's MASTERING THE ART OF FRENCH COOKING, but I still don't think we're brave enough to try cooking the Wellington.Also, the picture in your title header is gorgeous. Is it Florence? I thought maybe I recognized the cathedral from my old AP Art History days... :)
Hi Krista!Nice to meet you too! I love your blog...so helpful and encouraging to me! Thanks for everything you post. You know, after watching Julia and Julia, I thought about purchasing that cookbook. How's the experimenting been for you? Any 'must try's'? We love to eat ;D You could easily do Beef Wellington--really it's not that complicated. Just expensive!And thank you! The photo IS florence...love photo stitch!
We loved her reine de saba cake. It's a chocolate-and-almond masterpiece that's rumored to be her favorite. We were also pretty wild about some pork chops of hers we tried (cotes de porc poelees, I believe she called them), especially with the mustard, cream, and tomato sauce she mentioned on the next page.
Ooo. I HAVE to try that chocolate-and-almond dessert. Thanks! Amazon order, here I come...
Thanks for stopping by! Please, leave a message...
