World Flavor Wednesday: How I Fell In Love with Greece

World Flavor Wednesday: French Cuisine

“In France, cooking is a serious art form and a national sport.” Julia Child said that, and while she wasn’t French, she was positively obsessed with French cooking. She also said, “If you’re afraid of butter, use cream.” Julia Child was a bona fide genius. I won’t make this entire post about Julia, but I will give credit where credit […]
