Julie & Julia
This weekend I went and watched Julie & Julia with my good friend Allison over at Allioppe. We loved it! It stars Meryl Streep as Julia Child - she and her husband move to France and in order to occupy her time she enrolls in cooks classes at Le Cordon Bleu. She loves to cook and loves to eat even more! After graduating cooking school she begins her journey on writing a cook book and even more time tying to get it published. Stanley Tucci plays her husband and you can't help but fall in love with the adorable and hilarious couple! Intertwined in this plot in the story of Julie played by Amy Adams, a lowly cubicle worker who wanted to find herself and did so by cooking her way through Julia Child's cookbook. Her story shows her quest to complete the task of cooking 524 recipes in 356 days while writing all about the journey in her blog. I don't want to give too much away, but encourage you all to go see it!
