If you love to cook, you must go see Julie & Julia. The film opened August 7th, and has been causing quite a stir among culinary adventurers. Meryl Streep’s portrayal of Julia Child is charming, witty, and fun. The screen play written and directed by Nora Ephron is a creative adaptation on two best selling books.
Amy Adams is Julie Powell, a cubicle worker from Queens New York that decides to take on Julia Child’s Master of French Cooking in one year while blogging about her experience. The task was to complete 524 recipes in 365 days, while working her full time job for an insurance company.
The story of Julia Child is rich with a passion for life, love, food, and of course butter. I couldn’t help but leave the theater inspired to cook some beef bourguignon, and crack a fresh baguette.
For more Julia, I suggest you visit the kitchen that Paul & Julia Child designed for their Boston home at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. You can see all of her kitchen gadgets, books, videos, and the largest pot collection I have ever seen. The kitchen is simple and classic, it is really just so Julia.
