Weekend Special – Vive la France

Julia Child’s birthday was Wednesday … why not extend the tribute and celebrate this weekend with a dinner inspired by the great French Chef.

Why not recreate Julia’s first lunch in France!?! Start with Oysters on the Half-Shell. Since there is no R in August, it might be tricky. It’s okay to substitute Salmon Mousse. Next move onto Filet de Sole Meunière. Since Julia’s lunch was in France, I’m guessing the sole was served with steamed new potatoes with a dollop of butter and a sprinkle of parsely.

Of course the salad is served as a separate course. A simple green salad with a Classic Vinaigrette will be perfect. And finish it off with a gorgeous cheese plate. If unlike Julia, you insist on a sweet, why not go for Chocolate Mousse.

Have a great weekend! Bon appétit!
