What I've heard, although cannot speak from first-hand experience:

1. "Ridiculously complicated," as you said.
2. Completely and utterly worth it.

That is what I've heard, too. Amazingly good but time intensive.

I've never made it, but maybe one day...

I might try it one day when I have about 3-4 hours to kill!

I made it once several years ago. I didn't find it overly complicated, just very time-consuming.

If you do it the way she wrote it, with the auxiliary recipes for the mushrooms, bacon and onions, it is basically an all-day endeavor.

I went all out and purchased top ingredients to make it for my husband's birthday and fussed over it all day. When we sat down to eat, I thought it was a very ... good ... stew. That's it. Not a life-changing meal, and certainly not a can't-live-without recipe that I have time to do now that I have three kids.

Also I thought some younger cooks might enjoy seeing some old Julia tapes. She really was a hoot on TV. This clip I believe is rather old because it is about the movie Julia and Me. I understand Julia was really ticked about this young girl trying to cook her way thru Julia's book and even refused to correspond in any way with her. She died shortly thereafter.

25 episodes of Julia Child are now free, streaming on Amazon Prime video, if one has the access.

Hey, Wilson513, nice to find you here ... food ... common interest it seems. Especially nice to find a Cinti person on this board. Cinti is coming along, gastronomically speaking.
