Julia Child Restaurant Week kicked off last Tuesday but I’m celebrating this week with two Julia Child-inspired adventures in Atlanta:
- Mastering French Cuisine cooking class at The Viking Store – I haven’t taken a cooking class since I was little (yes…I used to do that) so I couldn’t be happier to attend this one with my mom tonight! With a Julia Child focus, the class will teach us to make classic French dishes like Beef Bourguignon and Classical Chocolate Soufflé!
- Dinner at Bistro Niko – Apparently Atlanta’s hottest French restaurant is featuring Crepes Suzette, Supreme de Volaille aux Champignons, Sole Meuniere, and Julia’s Ratatouille this week . I’ve been waiting all summer to finally dine at Bistro Niko, so what better time than now to celebrate?!
…if you don’t know who Julia Child is, you are wrong. She’s THE master of French cooking (literally…her book is called “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” ) and an American culinary icon. I’ve read her biography, “My Life in France” and seen the movie filmed about her life, “Julie & Julia” so I’m ready to get a real taste of her cooking this week!
