The Cooking In Sanity Project: Variation I & II of Fish Filets Poached in White Wine

Hey everyone!

Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I made a cheese and mushroom sauce as well as julienned vegetables.  I served the sauce and vegetables with my fish poached in white wine.  Now, I am not a fan of mushrooms at all, and I have never heard of cheese being paired with fish, but I decided to be brave and do it for Julia.  Here’s how I did it:

The cheese and mushroom sauce tasted…interesting.  I was definitely not a fan, but it wasn’t as bad as I expected.  I think I’ll stick to cheese-free fish, and I won’t be eating a bowl of mushrooms anytime soon.  I’m glad I tried it, and now I can at least say I tried it and didn’t like it.

The full recipe can be found in Mastering the Art of French Cooking (2 Volume Set). I think every good cook deserves to have a copy of Julia Child’s masterpiece in their kitchen.

Thanks for reading, I’ll see you next time!

The Side Dish: I have to say, it was quite comical watching Lizzie cringe while cooking this variation.  She loathes mushrooms and I burst out laughing when she ate a bite.  I love mushrooms so at least this dish didn't go to waste.
