The One and Only Nicoise by Julia Child
It's so beautifully arranged on the plate - you know someone's fingers have been all over it.” -Julia Child
When I first met my husband I was surprised to discover this "spicy man" had an unusual favorite dish: Nicoise Salad. It was then that I began my search for a delectable recipe to satisfy his craving.
And who better to learn how to make a terrific Nicoise salad than Julia? To this day, it still stands as the Best Nicoise he has ever had.
Julia Child was the Queen of French cooking. When I research her recipes, I find that her techniques are solid and there is an uncommon quality to them that showcases her love and understanding of food and creativity in the kitchen; she was beyond her time and her TV show changed the world of cooking. Her overall "klutziness" in the kitchen (or perhaps she was just tipsy?) is uncommon to see, yet utterly adorable and proves to be just as entertaining as tasting her creations!
