This Couple Just Made Oreo Tacos & You're Definitely Going To Want To Recreate Them

  This Couple Just Made Oreo Tacos & You're Definitely Going To Want To Recreate Them Choco Tacos, Klondike’s taco-shape ice cream treat, were a very important part of my childhood. Now that the glory days of the 90s are over however, Choco Tacos are a lot harder to find, so I’ve been forced to live without the chocolately take on the taco for many years. That’s why I was stoked to find that a YouTube-famous couple invented a different way to combine the sweet flavor of chocolate with the convenient shape of a taco.Julia and J.P. of Hellthy JunkFood recently went head to head to see who could make the best version of what they called "Oreo Tacos." The admirable quest led J.P.

The culinary legend's 1,500-square-foot cottage, located in the Provence region of southeastern France, was purchased by Colorado native Makenna Johnston over a year ago, and is now reopened as a cooking retreat.

When classes aren't in session, guests can still experience the property by renting it out exclusively through Airbnb.

"I've been following Julia since I was a small child — I just find her so dynamic and larger than life," Johnston told TODAY shortly after purchasing the property. "It was a no-brainer," she said of the decision to purchase the property when she saw an article about the house being for sale in the Smith College alumni magazine (both she and Child, who died in 2004 at the age of 91, graduated from there).

You Can Soon Spend the Night in Julia Child ' s French Home . Realistically, though, how long could a four-bedroom cottage with a swimming pool, a lush flower garden, and Julia Child ’ s former kitchen sit vacant?

As if vacationing in the French countryside wasn't already swoon-worthy enough, the coolest accommodations a home cook could ever ask for just hit the Airbnb market: Julia Child ' s Provencal home , La Peetch!

The home — lovingly named La Pitchoune ("the little one") by Child and her husband, Paul — was used as a culinary school beginning in the '90s.

"When I found that out, my wheels started spinning," Johnston, a business strategist and life coach, said. "I thought, why limit it to just my usage and a cooking school? Why not let other people use it as a retreat center?"

The first is through enrollment in the "Courageous Cooking" sessions. From April through June, and September through October, La Pitchoune (or "La Peetch" as it's sometimes referred to) will be hosting weekly all-inclusive vacations that include cooking lessons, local excursions and optional daily yoga sessions. Johnston's wife, Evie, will lead the kitchen with experience from the International Culinary Institute in New York City. And Johnston, who will study at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris this year, will act as the sous chef.

WASHINGTON — The house on Olive Street here was Julia Child ’ s “little jewel,’’ the first home she owned “We have this yin and yang, hating how it looks and loving the history of the house,’’ Orlowski said. But the home may have a new life, if demanding Georgetown historic preservationists agree.

"We want to bring back accessible cooking," she said of the types of lessons they'll be teaching, which will include modernized techniques Child was taught. "Our target market is the same as hers."

Another way La Peetch can be used is as a venue or a intimate retreat.

"A lot of (Julia's) past friends and colleagues have asked to rent it," Johnston said. "We expect people to use it to teach classes, launch books and host retreats."

While the listing notes that there is currently a shortage of local private chefs, by summer 2019, renting the property will also include one meal cooked for guests by a private chef.

The three-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath home sleeps six. It's furnished with Louis XV-style pieces and includes an outside patio that overlooks a pool. There's also a yoga space in the garden, and a 16-foot canvas tent available for use. Starting in June 2020, La Peetch will offer one "bespoke wedding experience" a year.
