    davinandkennard's Note:

    I am copying this from a first edition French Chef cookbook. My boxer ate the cover because the latent smells were so delicious. I have served these many time to total acclaim. Yes, there are many steps, but the end result is worth it!

      I used to watch Julia Childs as a "child" back in the 1960's......I'm straight by the way.......and I thought this mushroom recipe was great for an appetizer! So when I was 10 or so I made them for one of our big family dinners with cousins,aunts and uncles, etc. It was a hit and at mom still raving about them.

      I have made these many times, and Julia Child's recipe is a gem, and worth every minute of preparation. The only thing I would add is she calls for an optional 1/4 cup of Madeira (a dry rich wine) which is added to the mushrooms and onions and then cooked down before adding the bread crumbs, cheese, etc. The Madeira makes it one of the most memorable dishes you will ever make.
