Monday Evening Musings from Julia Child...

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties 01238708

The book "People who Love to Eat Are Always the Best People" is next to me in my home office. It is hands reach to the other ones like Marcus Aurelius, John Wooden and a few others.

When I need to relax after a crazy day or take a break I reach out to my favorite people. Well tonight it was Julia Child.

"...To be a good cook you have to have a love of the good, a love of hard work, and love of creating..."

 

" ...My the things I cheapened by using fat instead of butter, or this instead of that, all for a few cents of economy..."

All I can say is she is spot on with both comments and needless to say the older I get the more I follow this motto, do not save a few cents for superb quality. After all you do not need to use a lot of the more expensive items... just a little and it brings your meal to the next level.

I keep telling Diane I spend a hundred dollars and we have two gourmet meals most of the time that we would have paid $250 dollars or more in a restaurant.

Well today I treated ourselves after a hard day of work in Real Estate we had sushi and sashimi for dinner.

Oh, that is right up my alley!! My favorite meal, Endre! I totally agree with what Julia said about quality. It's worth every penny to purchase THE best ingredients. I love The Fresh Market here and so many times people will ask where I got something and I tell them there. They say they don't go there because it's so expensive, that they can get the same thing at their local _____ (grocer). Nope, they can't but, I don't correct them!

Debe Maxwell, CRS  I also love bringing the food flavors to the next level by adding truffle shavings, infused truffle oil or saffron to name a few. Most people will not realize that it does not take a lot of money to bring the flavors to a higher level. Endre

Endre, now I have a craving for shrimp and scallops with saffron over capellini. That was one of my favorite meals at an upscale restaurant here (that is no longer in business). I tried a few times to duplicate the recipe after the owner retired with no success but it was the saffron that made it extra special.
