In this episode of You & Julia At Home, Amy Traverso, Senior Food Editor at Yankee Magazine and co-host of GBH's Weekends with Yankee, makes Julia Child's Quiche Lorraine from her home kitchen. Quiche Lorraine is a fancy-feeling yet simple dish of eggs, bacon and cream, perfect for a time when you are seeking comfort. Amy cracked open her mom's copy of Mastering The Art of French Cooking and put her spin on this classic recipe, adding Vermont sharp cheddar cheese for a taste of New England.

“I think Julia, if she were alive today, would be encouraging us all to use our kitchens as place to take care of ourselves,” Amy said. “To take pleasure in life!”
