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!

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!
