This smiling image arrived with the press release, looking like a still from Julia's TV show.
Julia Child is perhaps the most famous (deceased) food enthusiast, and cooking classes inspired by her have been selling out all over the city, most especially since the release of the film Julie & Julia. The syllabus for this class has been pulled from Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking --just try and find a used copy of that in a Seattle bookstore these days for anything under a hundred smackers--and include a vocabulary lesson. Terms you'll learn (and may consume) by the end of this demonstration class: monter au beurre, beurre manié, liaison, reduction, and slurry. The menu includes Child's iconic coq au vin, as well as classic omelets, asparagus with Hollandaise, and, to finish, a soufflé flavored with Grand Marnier.
