In honor of Julia Child and the new movie "Julie and Julia".
Spent the weekend with in-laws and watched a bunch of vintage "Cooking with Julia" early PBS shows.
My gawd they were entertaining and matched all of the the "Saturday Night Live" parodies. They were shot in Black and White with one camera. A thirty-minute show in one shot with one camera. It was like watching a classic Hitchcock movie except about cooking.
She did literally toss crumbs and such out of the pan onto the floor at her feet and keep cooking.
In the omelet show she was turning out omelets in 40 seconds after the prep work was done. And she absolutely showed you exactly what you had to do to get the same results - and if she messed up she showed that and showed how to fix it ... "After all, you are in the privacy of your own kitchen, who is to know?"
It was so enticing and delicious looking that we had to go out and get omelet stuff and try and repeat the work.
I got to saute the veggies and shrooms and that was it, so it was not "daddy cookin'".
I also did not get to go to the "Julie and Julia" movie with the girls.
But I did get a great omelet and all I had to do was sweat some onions, celery, mushrooms, garlic, and of course, prepare a few adult beverages.
gratin with polish sausage and onions
we currently are watching old episodes of The French Chef with Julia Child. the first one was the potato episode from which this recipe was born - Gratin de Pommes de Terre et Saucisson. we also found it on page 155 of Mastering the Art of French Cooking for more exact measurements.
it was very satisfying and hearty. the only changes we made were to use parmesan on top as we did not have swiss, added more onions and followed her on-screen guidance for the custard of 2 eggs to 1 1/2 cups of cream. we paired it with simple broiled asparagus with a bit of lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper.
man i miss red wine, woulda rounded out this meal wonderfully! that and a big hunk of good crusty bread. i DO love my carbs - i'm finding it even more so as a pregnant lady.
