OK so I've had this Mastering the Art of French Cooking for quite some time now. I finally got the courage to make Julia Child's Boeuf Bourguinon and it was really good! It sounds like it would take forever but the meat cooks in the oven for 2 hrs other than that it was really pretty quick. I made some crusty french bread with olive oil and cheese and for dessert I cooked fresh peaches in sugar, butter, and fresh squeezed orange juice. I made home made crepes and whipped cream. The meal was worth the wait.
