Twenty Fifth Birthday Dinner

Some time in January I decided on a French themed dinner for my 25th birthday, probably because my favourite part of Paris was the food. The whole menu (aside from the store-bought dessert) came from Ina Garten’s Barefoot in Paris and Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

The first meal that Julia Child had in Paris was Sole Meuniere, and the recipe itself is simple and very French: the main ingredient is a lot of butter. Sole is a bit hard to find where I live, so having it all is a bit exciting. Recipe here.

My dad made garlic mashed potatoes and french spring beans from Ina Garten, and I threw together a grape fruit and avocado salad, recipe here. Everything was fairly simple. I naively thought that I could buy Macarons for dessert from Loblaws, but they ended up being 2.49 each, which is bit excessive for something so small. I bought two for my mom and I, then a lemon butter cake.
