10 of Julia Child's most famous dishes

Canard a l'Orange


Perhaps the most coveted duck dish in Julia Child's repertoire, while the preparation of the duck is important, it is the caramel-colored orange sauce that makes this dish stand out. 

Boeuf Bourguignon


This hearty beef stew from the pages of "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" is, hands down, Child's most infamous dish.

Coq au Vin


Child mastered this widely popular French dish, featuring flavorful chicken with mushrooms and onions in a red wine sauce.

Moules a la Mariniere


Child made plenty of delicious seafood dishes, but her steamed mussels platter in white wine is probably the most duplicated

French Onion Soup


While this side dish has become commonplace in American-style restaurants, Child's version requires some extra time and care-, with added flavor to make it well worth the extra work.

Salade Nicoise


 This tasty salad consisting of tuna, hard-boiled egg and anchovies is easy to recreate in the comfort of your own kitchen.

Piscialandrea


Child popularized this variation of pizza, native to Southern France, which consists of olives, anchovies and onion filling.

Brioche


Child's recipes typically called for high amounts of butter, so it's no surprise that this well-known French pastry bread can be found in her recipe archive.

Reine de Saba


According to the New York Times, this decadent chocolate and almond cake was the first French dessert that Child ever made

Chocolate Mousse


Paris-based pastry chef David Lebovitz used the term "perfect" when describing Child's sticky and sweet chocolate mousse recipe.
