What a delightful story! And thank you for the recipe.

Steven's story is so funny! I grew up watching Julia Child on television alongside my mother. We would then head into the kitchen and cook. Great fun, great memories. It’s so unfortunate that my mother died before I met Julia; she would have been so excited. I met Julia not long before she moved out of the Cambridge house and again on several occasions throughout the last few years of her life. She was so nice. I always intended to invite her over for afternoon tea, but never got around to it. (You can't procrastinate when you're dealing with people in that age group!) I would have felt really strange cooking in front of her, but with afternoon tea everything is prepared in advance. So I could avoid burning my eyebrows off! Or worse!
