On Monday, Food Wishes will be honored as the "Blog of the Day," on the official Julie & Julia website! For those of you not familiar, Julie & Julia is a soon-to-be-released movie based on an autobiographical book by Julie Powell.
Entitled "Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen," the book recounts Powell's quixotic mission to cook, and blog about, every recipe from Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking," in a period of 365 days -- all 524 recipes (and you think I cook a lot).
The movie stars Meryl Streep as Julia Child, with Amy Adams playing the intrepid Julie Powell. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the movie trailer below -- Meryl Streep's Julia Child is so scarily accurate, I think that some sort of supernatural possession may have occurred. I've also included a clip of Streep talking about her role.
I will be doing a special Julie & Julia blog post on Monday in celebration of this great honor, hopefully including a Julia Child-inspired video recipe. Stay tuned!
