Happy Birthday Julia Child: Now "Bring on the Roasted Potatoes"



When I was young and trying to impress people with my meager cooking skills, I always made Julia Child's chocolate mousse. It was a real show stopper, especially when I finished the rich and delicious dessert with freshly whipped cream. I've been thinking about that mousse all morning in a small personal homage to Child, who would have been 100 years old today. I did a little internet searching for the recipe, and found this excellent tutorial for the mousse on a blog by David Lebovitz called Living the Sweet Life in Paris. You should give it a try.

 

I also came across this charming video remix on Child by John D. Boswell at PBS Digital Studios. Even if you skip the mousse, take a few minutes to watch this video. (Click here!) I think Child would love it as much as I do. She was a very funny lady after all.
