Mother’s Day Celebration: Cooking like Julia
Julia did not start out as a great French chef. She found she had an unwavering affection for French cooking when she moved to France.  Like all of us, she had success and failures
but, along the way, developed a true knack not only for French cooking but also in translating the many facets of French cooking into every day terms and techniques, accepting mistakes as part of the process.  

Ladies bring your daughter, mom, grandmother, aunt or friend for an evening of fun and entertainment as we explore Cooking like Julia.
