From Mastering the Art of French Cooking (Julia Child et al.), this was my contribution for the fabulous MLFB event today.

Court Boullion (p. 536)
2 cups water
6 TB olive oil
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
2 TB minced shallot or green onion
(following, tied in cheesecloth if desired:)
6 sprigs parsley including roots if available
1 small celery stalk with leaves or 1/8 tsp celery seeds
1 sprig fresh fennel or 1/8 tsp fennel seeds
1 sprig fresh thyme or 1/8 tsp dried thyme
12 peppercorns
6 coriander seeds
2 to 3 TB minced parsley or mixed green herbs

Place all ingredients in a covered 2 1/2 qt covered saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes.

Champignons à la Grecque (p. 537)
1 lb fresh mushrooms, button size if possible
2 1/2 cups simmering court bouillon

Trim and wash the mushrooms. Leave whole if small, quarter if large. Add them to the simmering court bouillon, tossing them to cover with the liquid. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Remove the mushrooms from the saucepan with a slotted spoon, and arrange them in a serving dish. Rapidly boil down the court bouillon until it has reduced down to about 1/3 cup. Correct seasoning, and strain it over the mushrooms.

When cold, the mushrooms may be covered and refrigerated, and will keep for 2 to 3 days.

Sprinkle with herbs just before serving

I haven't posted to the blog yet, myself, but there is now a Michigan Lady Food Bloggers blog. It's a kind of meta-blog, I guess. I want to watch it on my friends list. So I made a livejournal account for the feed.

For your food-related reading enjoyment, you can find it at [ profile] mlfb_blog.

I created feeds on lj for many of the foodblogs of MLFB foodblogger attendees and invitees. Here's a list of ones I have made so far:

[ profile] 4obsessionsfeed
[ profile] dianadyerfeed
[ profile] doghillfeed
[ profile] hungrymassesrss
[ profile] thefarmersmarke
[ profile] unabuonaforch

I did this for my own convenience, so I will get notified on my livejournal friends page when new entries are posted, but I thought other lj users might be interested in having these in their friends page too. If I missed one you would lie me to add, please let me know. It's a perk of having a paid account that I am happy to exercise. :)

And, one that already existed that might be of interest: [ profile] kitchen_chick

Edited to correct the idea that I made the kitchen chick feed, 'cause I didn't.

This past Saturday, I was blessed to attend a second "Lady Foodblogger" event, at Shayne's house in Livonia. Or, rather, in her wonderfully appointed backyard. SO's and even families were invited to this follow-up event, so [ profile] illyaa, M, and S joined me. M and Shayne's oldest, Z, got along very well. The food was again amazing. I still feel like a poseur, since my blog is a vanity blog/journal and not a dedicated foodblog like that of many of the other attendees', but I was not about to turn down a chance to eat the wonderful food of the other attendees! As a bonus, we were serenaded by the Livonia Franklin Marching Band practice nearby for most of the party.

BTW, If you're clicking through from one of their blogs and looking for my food posts, click on the "cooking" tag link on the sidebar, since they are sprinkled through my lj in no particular order. Or, click here.
