I'm sure I have to be the thousand and eleventy-ninth person to blog about Julia Child since the movie came out. I don't care. She was special, and I want to say that here. I think it was her authenticity, both in her recipes and in her daily life that has endeared her to so many.
Today I'm making her Chocolate Mousse, and speaking of authenticity, this is the real deal. This recipe uses no heavy whipping cream. Instead, raw eggs. I would be lying if I said I had no hesitations, but after reading information that David Lebovitz provided, I can say I feel much better. For complete egg education, read this. You may feel better too.
