Looks like I have been forced to bake again for this weeks Julia Child recipe.

This time it’s the Charlotte Chantilly with strawberries, a wonderfully creamy dessert encased in delicious homemade ladyfingers. As was mentioned on my previous baking effort, which happened to be my first for the blog, I had earned myself a 100% track record by successfully baking the Reine De Saba.

Now maybe my confidence was a little too high this time around, as I successfully completed the difficult part (though not very), of baking the lady fingers, I felt like I was on track for another success… Well folks, I was then graced by my very first minor baking disaster! As I was beating the egg yolks and sugar for the Chantilly, everything was going great. I had beat them until ribbony and pale yellow, then continued beating over not quite simmering water until hot to the touch, then proceeded to the last step of beating them while chilling.

Roast Chicken with Lemon & Dill | JC100 – Week 8

It’s hard to believe we are already on week eight of the Julia Child celebration. This week’s French cooking assignment was a roasted chicken. Like Bob & I’s other posts, we wanted to jazz things up a bit so we did a lemon dill roasted chicken. Is it possible to ever go wrong with lemon and dill?! This chicken was moist, full of flavour and easy to make! Let’s get to the recipe so you can start cooking it too! Continue reading

Sole Meuniere | JC 100 – Week 7

This week the folks representing Julia Child finally decided to bring out the infallible Sole Meuniere, the recipe that changed it all for Julia! Now I can’t attest to having an “AHA” moment like Julia Child upon first bite, but I must say this was some pretty tasty fish! I will be honest, I was ready to be underwhelmed just based off the fact that this recipe has so much hype surrounding it, but I was pleasantly surprised to find myself enjoying what became a very simple and delicious meal! The Sole had a wonderful browned, crisp and buttery exterior, with a soft, flaky interior, which, topped with some lemon juice, was excellent.

Reine De Saba (Chocolate & Almond Cake) | JC100 – Week 6

Ladies and gentleman…I have a very important update in the culinary world of Bob.

I present REINE DE SABA i.e. my very FIRST time baking for the blog!

Going into the Julia Child 100 year celebration, I knew I wanted to be involved as a way to improve my cooking skills and repertoire. What I didn’t know, is that I would be improving my baking skills too! Naturally, the first week we receive a baking assignment, Carlene is out of town, leaving it in MY HANDS! Not one to back down from a challenge, I committed myself to this recipe and ended up with a successfully baked cake!

Vichyssoise (Cold Leek & Potato Soup) | JC100 – Week 5

We are now on week five of trying various recipes of Julia Child’s – hard to believe time is zipping by this quickly. When we received this soup recipe I was quite excited because potatoes are one of my favourite veggies and leeks are pretty sweet too with their fun, light onion taste. With this soup being served cold, it’s a great summer meal; but take note that it’s great served warm as well. But let’s get to the recipe, because it does take a bit of time… Continue reading

Salad Nicoise | JC 100 – Week 4

Time is flying by with the Julia Child 100 year celebration and it’s already onto week 4! This time with the fancy and filling Salad Nicoise [nee-SWAHZ]. With each assignment Carlene and I receive, we try to stay true to the recipe, but add a little extra flare if possible! This week is no exception. Instead of piling a bunch of ingredients into a bowl, we wanted to use some great fresh tuna and a different plating style to class things up a bit!

Coq au Vin | JC 100 – Week 3

It is now week 3 of the 100 year celebration of Julia Child and they’ve hit us with a doozy! Well not really, but this one did certainly take more time than the Omelette Roulee of week 1 which was in and out of my HOT pan in a minute and a half! (That’s my kind of recipe). This week I was faced with Coq au Vin, which is essentially “Chicken in Wine”. I knew this would be more challenging for me, not because it was difficult to prepare, but because I don’t like following recipes, but I stuck it through and it was a success!

Julia Child’s Gluten Free Chocolate Kahlua Mousse | JC100 – Week 2

As many of you may know, Bob & I have been asked to blog in part to celebrate a cooking goddess’s birthday….Miss Julia Child! Now it’s my turn for this round and luckily the draw came out with a dessert – Mousseline Au Chocolat (aka. Chocolate Mousse) – to be exact! I have to admit that I was pretty scared to try this recipe because I thought it would be extremely challenging, but boy was I wrong, it was super easy & SUPER delicious! I also switched up JC’s classic mousse a bit….but let’s get to this recipe so you can see what I changed
