The Cafe Celebrates Julia Child with French Bites

Posted: August 17, 2020

By: GEPL Staff

Julia Child was an American cooking teacher, author, television personality, and trailblazer. This week, in honor of what would have been her 108th birthday, The Cafe will celebrate by preparing a few recipes from her groundbreaking book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Visit us between 10 am-5:30 pm this Monday, Wednesday, and Friday!

Here’s what’s planned:

Monday-Friday: The special soup of the week is Vichyssoise (cold leek and potato soup)

Monday: Quiche Au Roquefort (Roquefort cheese quiche) and Quiche Aux Fruits De Mer (shrimp quiche)

Wednesday: Gâteau Fourré à la Crème d’Orange (sponge cake with orange-butter filling)

Friday: Salade Niçoise (Mediterranean combination salad)

As Ms. Child said after every one of her cooking shows, “Bon Appetit!”
