After watching Julie & Julia again the other night I became re-inspired, not only to blog, but to cook, and to write, and to generally live life fearlessly. After all, that’s what Julia Child did.
Actually, it was after watching this movie the first time that I decided to start this blog. I’m not too sure what I hope to get out of it, but it is fun and it gives me writing practice in the very least (gotta get those 10,000 hours in you know).
For those of you who enjoyed this movie or enjoyed Julia Child’s cooking show, you must read My Life in France. It details Julia’s life before the fame and sheds light on all the very hard work she put in to get to that point. She was one dedicated, fearless, and deserving woman.
Not that I will ever fool myself into thinking I can cook from it, Mastering the Art of French Cooking is also a must read simply for the tone in which it was written. And for the unquestionable expertise.
Merci Mrs. Child!
