Celebrating with Julienne takes you into the kitchens of one of California’s most acclaimed cooks, Susan Campoy, the founder and chef of Julienne, a romantic French-California spot in the pretty Los Angeles suburb of San Marino. Susan shares the best recipes of her career, along with stories, tips, and advice for the budding cook, caterer or restaurateur.
The three sections of the book showcase the three components of life at Julienne. In the Brasserie section, you’ll find the recipes for many of the most beloved dishes at the breakfast-and-lunch bistro. The Gourmet Market section brings richly flavorful soups, entrees, salads, side dishes, and desserts, many of which are easy to prepare and can be made a day (or a week) in advance. In Celebrations, Campoy shares complete menus for six of her very favorite occasions.
After 35 years of creating food for others to enjoy, Campoy has shared her secrets, so fans old and new can create this sophisticated American comfort food for themselves.
