I love Julia Child’s story – it’s about passion, finding your dream, loving life, tragedy and success. If you haven’t already taken two hours to watch the movie Julie & Julia – do it. Amy Adams and Meryl Streep do a fabulous job of telling two stories that intertwine, yet happen in separate decades.
Julie is a lacking passion in her job, dreams of being a writer (but doubts her abilities) and then starts a blog where she cooks her way through each of the recipes in Julia Child’s first cookbook. You can guess where this leads….
Julia’s story is a simple, yet entertaining, biography of Julia Child’s life. Watch it.
Anyway, I love Julia Child’s simple, quick wit, and I adore her quotes. Here are my favorites:
“You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.”
