Chef Debra’s Christine Ha Challenge

In the style of the 2009 movie Julie & Julia, a frustrated office worker (Julie) is inspired to cook every recipe in Julia Child’s The Art of French Cooking cookbook in one year. For her, there were 524 recipes and lots of butter!

I plan to do the same with Christine Ha’s cookbook Recipes from My Home KitchenChristine Ha, a blind cook, was the winner of Season 3 MasterChef and her choice for the prize was the opportunity to write and publish a cookbook. The recipes consist of Asian and American comfort foods. There are only 77 recipes in the book and some I will adapt for The Blind Kitchen so this is a very doable resolution … even if it does take me more than just one year.

I will be posting these recipes periodically. So, check back on the Recipes page of this website.
