My grandma LIED! Beurre Blanc is, in fact, the best sauce. My friend Grey and I followed this recipe in honor of Julia and proceeded to smother our salt rubbed chicken and delightful vegetables with lots and lots of it. I mean, we each consumed an astounding amount of sauce. But we couldn't leave perfection alone- we had to follow our meal with Grey's homemade (he followed this recipe, again Julia) croissants also smothered in Beurre blanc.
Ha! Just kiddin. We made vanilla bean frosting. Way more sensible than beurre blanc for dessert!!!!!!
Go make some sauce.
