Learning the basics of wine from Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking
I first discovered Julia Child five or six years ago when I read her book My Life in France. At the time I was more interested in France than Julia or food. But through Julia’s enthusiasm for food I became interested and asked for Mastering the Art of French Cooking for Christmas. After reading the first few sections on kitchen equipment and proper knife usage I felt a little overwhelmed. However, her section on wines was fascinating to me. Wine pairing, serving and storage is a little intimating at first. Some people dedicate their entire lives to learning about wines, but Julia made sense of it for me. In today’s post, I want to hit the highlights of wine pairing with food, wine serving and wine storage that Julia outlines in her classic cookbook.
