Four Fantastic Julia Child Recipes

August 15th, 2017

On what would have been her 105th birthday, we have selected four fantastic recipes from Julia Child herself that definitely warrant space in your recipe box. Take a look below.

Potato & Leek Soup

Enamel Recipe Box

The smooth and creamy consistency of this soup would make a great first course during a dinner party, or a light lunch at home.

Ratatouille

Julia Child’s ratatouille is hearty and delicious, and tastes great freshly made or the day after!

Pâte a Brioche

Light and sweet and rich; you won’t want to ever be without this Brioche recipe.

Apricot Sherbet

Since it is summer after all, we had to include a cool and tasty dessert. While this sherbert recipe does have a long prep time (it needs to be almost frozen, after all), it is so worth it.
