Julie and Julia

Posted in Cooking/Baking at 3:15 AM by Margaret

Hello all,

My family and I are watching Julie and Julia, which I have seen before and abosolutely love. It is possibly my favourite movie. It is just one of those films that gives you a nice feeling in your heart, you know? And maybe it is because I like to cook/bake, and that is why I love it so much, but either way, it is definetley a movie worth seeing. For those who aren’t familiar with it, here is a quick rundown:

This movie is based off of two true stories; one about a modern day woman in a city who finds joy in cooking, and the other about Julia Child, who would later change cooking history. Here is the cover for the book written by Julie Powell:

 

And here is the movie cover:

This is a movie (and book) about two women seperated by decades, but who both find a joy in cooking. What happens when a modern day woman moving into a city gives herself the ultimate challenge: cooking through Julia Child’s cookbook in one year?  watch the movie and find out!

Whether you are into cooking or not, this is definitely a movie to watch.

And, as Julia Child would say,

Bon Appetite!

    I absolutely LOVE Julie & Julia! I heart, heart, heart it! My favourite part is at the end where Julia is going to send off her manuscript to the publisher and she’s getting all teary-eyed and she says something like, “I love these moments where nothing is undecided and anything can happen.” It’s just such a good movie and I love Amy Adams and Meryl Streep in it! They did such swell jobs!
