Mastering the art of French ... Patience

Hannah and I saw the movie "Julie/Julia" last week and now Hannah wants to cook. We bought the book featured in the movie "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" by Julia Child. Today we cooked our first dishes from the BOOK. The first is the very first recipe - Potage Parmentier (Leek & Potato Soup) and for dessert - Peches Cardinal (Compote of Fresh Peaches with Raspberry Puree). Hannah did most of the work... it was good. The little chef didn't like the soup - but the rest of us loved it.

Finishing touches.
