An Introduction to Julia.
So I recently made my very first recipe out of the fabled Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" book that my Dad gave me for my birthday. What fun! I made a Chocolate Souffle. I have always wanted to try making a Souffle, and I figured, what better way to begin my journey into french cooking than with a quintessential french delicacy? I've always liked dessert first.
It was a success! The Souffle was light and airy, warm and chocolatey. I topped it with some real whipped cream, lightly sweetened.
So creamy. Of course, the two of us couldn't exactly finish a whole souffle off by ourselves in one night, so I had to put the rest in the fridge. Surprisingly, I actually liked it better cold. It became more of a dense, rich pudding. Mmm. Hubby said he like it best warm though. Either way, it's just plain tasty!
