Coquilles St. Jacques

Bravado Cooking is about cooking with flair and élan – converting the preparation of a dish into a “food event” that your guests will remember.  Sass and swagger are words we like.  Bravado Cooking is also about making things from scratch – like piecrust, pizza crust, wine vinegars, mayonnaise, yogurt and breads.  We’re also into making classic dishes.  Bravado chefs don’t clip cute recipes out of magazines before they have perfected some of the great recipes of the past.

There is nothing more classic than the French and we’ve been doing a mini-series on French cooking.  We recently announced our choice of “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” by Julia Child, Louisette Bertholle and Simone Beck, as one of the top three cookbooks of all time (Best Cookbooks).  We told you about the “Julia Child Night” that we did for a charity event.  We’ve had a couple of posts about the Tarte Tatin, which we served for dessert that night.

We served another great favorite as the appetizer that night – Coquilles St. Jacques (pronounced “ko-kee san zhak”). This literally translates into St. James Scallops. (more…)
