Four Fantastic Julia Child Recipes

Tuesday, 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.

Trifles are the dessert for everyone: fruit, cake, pudding, whipped topping; the trifle has it all!

  2. Meanwhile, place strawberries in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with sugar and stir to combine, set aside.
  3. Pour cream into the chilled mixing bowl and add pudding mix and yogurt. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy.
  4. Spread a layer of pound cake cubes into the bottom of a 10 x 15-inch baking dish. Cover with a layer of strawberries and blueberries, then spread a layer of the whipped cream mixture over the berries. Repeat and end with a berry layer. Serve immediately (refrigerate leftovers).
