Good Morning!  I'm preparing to teach a class based on Julia Childs wonderful French recipes.

Potato and Leek Soup
Poulet Saute Aux Herbes Do Provence
Ratatouille
Butter Sauteed Fingerling Potatoes

Here's a tip on Eggplant :    Is it a boy or a girl??    When choosing eggplant look for the male eggplant, it has a longer look and it's marking on the bottom is circular.  Females have more seeds and therefore can be more bitter.  Females have a rounder look and their marking is more like a dash.
True story!

I'm looking forward to seeing the movie Julia and Julie.

With all the eggplant I've bought and eaten, I never knew there is a difference. Your menu looks delish!

About Me
Loving life at 50ish. Kids are gone and I'm focusing on my career! I enjoyed running a chocolate truffle business for 3 years and now teach adults and children about chocolate. I also teach hands on cooking classes at a local cooking school and am writing my first cookbook! Please visit me at my blog www.allrecipes.com/cook/givethemfood
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook almost anything but particularly enjoy Italian. I have been studying Vegetarian and Vegan cooking for the last few years and love to make healthy meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
from scratch cinnamon buns on Christmas morning...they take forever but Oh! so worth it!
My cooking triumphs
landing my dream job as a teaching chef.
My cooking tragedies
when I was teaching myself to cook way back in college, I made these wonderful oatmeal raisin cookies for my roomies....only problem was I forgot the flour! The cookies became one big mass that overflowed the cookie sheet and made a huge mess in the oven!
