As you've probably heard Julia Child passed away on Friday. I'm a huge fan of cooking shows and at our house the Food Network is on almost as much as Noggin/Nickelodeon/PBS Kids and ESPN. We occasionally catch Julia's shows on PBS as well.
Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume One was my mom's main cookbook when I was growing up. She often made the chocolate mousse, which is unbelievably decadent and not that hard to make. As a child, I liked to make Julia's recipe for crepes and still use Mastering the Art of French Cooking as well as The Way to Cook today.We'll miss you, Julia. Bon appetit!
