Life and Food and Love

I just finished reading Julie and Julia by Julie Powell and all I can say is absolutely amazing. If you love food and all things cooking then this is a book you have to read. The basic synopsis is that this is a book about Julie, who one day decided that her life was going no where and she needed to do something to make her mark on the world. Who hasn’t been dissatisfied with life at least once? Well Julie decided to cook her way through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, in a year and to write a blog about it. Thus was born the Julie/Julia project. Over the course of the year lots of amazing and horrible things happen, and I have to say that I laughed and cried right along with her. This is a book about so much more than discovering French food through the work of one of the most iconic cooking legends of all time. It is a work about life and love, and learning to love yourself. It is a book about discovery and learning to cut yourself some slack. It is a testament that life is like crepe making; sometimes it is perfect and effortless, but other times it does not matter what you do it comes out all jumbled and falling apart. My only regret is that I did not discover the Julie/Julia project while it was happening. I am anxiously awaiting Julie’s next book Cleaving which is due out in December, and am seriously considering calling out sick on Friday to be first in line to see the Julie and Julia movie.
Happy Reading and Happy Cooking,
Nikki B.
