    ChipotleChick's Note:

    Another one from the great Julia Child's book 'Mastering The Art of French Cooking.' Can be served hot or cold, it is tasty either way. I recommend reading the directions a few times over before preparing, to avoid confusion when cooking. Julia recommends in the book that this be served with baked whole tomatoes and green beans, and, if you'd like, a chilled rose wine.
