Here's the plot: A young modern woman decides to cook every recipe (524) in Julia Child's book Mastering the Art of French Cooking in 365 days and blog about it. It's a wonderful trip as she increases her skills and confidence, gains an audience, and finally triumphs with boning a duck and becoming famous. Anyway, I highly recommend the movie. As we walked out of the theatre after the movie, all we could talk about was food. I was ready to buy a duck, or maybe make Boeuf Bourgoignon, or at least an omelet. We settled for Chinese takeout, but the seed had been planted; I needed to cook something delicious.
So the next day I bought these ingredients and made this:
It's not French, but it was great fun anyway, and we did enjoy the flavors. But I should have gotten more mushrooms. I just love mushrooms, don't you?
The recipe calls for bucatini pasta. I found it at my favorite Italian specialty store.
