Julie and Julia: The Book and The Movie

In addition to being a fan of cookbooks, I also enjoy chick lit. There is a new movie coming out in August, Julie and Julia, based on the book of the same name. I bought the book a couple of weeks ago and going to start it tomorrow while I lie by the pool. It is about a woman, Julie Powell, the author, who is working as a secretary and decides to cook every one of the recipes in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking over a span of a year. That is 524 recipes in 365 days. The movie stars the wonderful Meryl Streep as Julia Child and Amy Adams as Julie Powell. The movie looks so freakin' cute and both Meryl and Amy are extremely talented actresses. I'll let you know how I enjoy the book.
