This weekend I decided to return to Julia and make some recipes out of The French Chef Cookbook. Since I was away all last weekend I didn’t have the chance to do any cooking and was happy to be back in the kitchen today.
I started with soupe a l’Oignon Gratinee (onion soup gratineed with cheese). It wasn’t a difficult recipe, however, you do need to allow plenty of time as there are various stages in which cooking durations are more than 30 minutes.
Before & After baking
I’ve never been a big fan of French onion soup, but Julia’s version was pretty good. D loves the stuff though and I knew he enjoyed tonight’s main course.
In honor of summer, salade nicoise (Mediterranean salad).
One day I hope to have it at a restaurant on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice.
I did leave out the anchovies though.
And for a sweet and light finish-les oranges glacees (fresh oranges glazed with orange peel)
And so I can have a little bit of Julia with me all the time, a birthday present from my parents:
