Julie & Julia by Julie Powell

Julie & Julia - My Year of Cooking Dangerously
by Julie Powell

"Irresistible .... A kind of Bridget Jones meets The French Chef." - Dianna Marder, Philadelphia Inquirer

Julie & Julia, the bestselling memoir that's "irresistible....A kind of Bridget Jones meets The French Chef" (Philadelphia Inquirer), is now a major motion picture. Julie Powell, nearing thirty and trapped in a dead-end secretarial job, resolves to reclaim her life by cooking in the span of a single year, every one of the 524 recipes in Julia Child's legendary Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Her unexpected reward: not just a newfound respect for calves' livers and aspic, but a new life-lived with gusto. The film version is written and directed by Nora Ephron and stars Amy Adams as Julie and Meryl Streep as Julia.

My thoughts ...

I used to watch Julie Child on PBS. There are many women that need to salute her for being the forerunner in cooking shows. What do you say ... Paula Deen, Rachel Ray and Sandra Lee? I think this is a wonderful book, well thought out and hilarious. As are many others, I am delighted and impressed. Bravo! I can't wait to see the movie. lol
