Coquilles St Jacques

Coquilles St Jacques

Proof that I've been inspired by Julie and Julia and by Julia Child......Coquilles St Jacques cooked by myself and served correctly on scallop shells!

Here's le menu from last week. I cooked 4 things from Mastering the Art of French Cooking:
  1. Haricots Verts à l’Anglaise (Buttered Green Beans, Julia Child 444)
  2. Purée de Pommes de Terre à L’Ail (Garlic mashed potatoes, Julia Child, 520)
  3. Poulet Poêlé à L’Estragon (Casserole roasted chicken with Tarragon, Julia Child 249)
  4. Coquilles St. Jacques à la Parisienne (Scallops & mushrooms in white wine sauce, Julia Child 216)
Definitely a few missteps (like 4 DAYS of garlic mashed potatoes) and definitely time consuming (about an hour and a half a night for 3 nights) but an interesting week none the less!

Clearly, I've lost my mind the last 3 months!
