I first fell in love with cooking through the famous French chef Julia Child. She had such an incredible way about her when it came to her love of cooking, and finding her passion in making French cooking accessible for Americans. I watched Julia and Julia, read books about her, watched her hilarious cooking show: The French Chef, and bought every cookbook of hers I could find. When I began transitioning into becoming vegetarian, I still appreciated her but knew that I may never be able to continue cooking with her and creating her recipes.
Recently, I’ve been trying to veganize just about everything… from chicken noodle soup to California sushi rolls. I knew the ultimate vegan challenge would be to take on any of Julia Child’s recipes, specifically her famous Boeuf Bourguignon. After some research, I came up with the perfect game plan on how I was going to tackle this flavorful, butter filled recipe making it 100% vegan, and I think I did it!
