Julie Powell & Julia Child

After reading the book, Julie and Julia, I became a fan of Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child, but also of Julie Powell...a woman whom I feel an immediate connection to...because we both enjoy discovering life's pleasures through the art of cooking. Just in case you don't know the story, Julie Powell was a temp living in NYC with her husband, Eric. As her job options continue to be less than she dreamed...she decided to take MAofFC and make all 524 recipes in one year. At her husband's suggestion, she started a blog on the topic, and I can hardly wait for the movie which comes out on August 7th! We should have a dinner party and make it a big night out!
