Julie and Julia

Last week I finished reading Julie and Julia by Julie Powell about her year cooking through Julia Child's cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking and blogging about it. It's an interesting read, interspersed with snippets of Julia Child's life. What makes it more fun is that it's a true story, and Julie Powell actually exists, and she actually did cook through all those recipes. Even the original blog still exists!!! Check it out here. She has a new blog now that her cooking project is finished, about her life.

Last night, I watched the movie adaptation. Meryl Strep does a spot on impression of Julia Child. She's brilliant! It's a fun movie to watch, and though it does not follow the book exactly, I would recommend it to anyone looking for something light to watch!
