Julie & Julia... what a great movie!...

I finally saw it! I went on a date - with my Hubby. He wasn't very keen at the beginning because of the movie itself (let's face it - it wasn't his first choice). But... he liked it a lot! He likes food, likes to eat and cook so I knew he will like it at the end. OK, so now my thoughts and my opinion about Julie & Julia ;) It's different, interesting and if you're 'foodie' - you can't miss it! I loved it from the very beginning :) It's funny, real (yes, we all have some 'accidents', better and worse days in the kitchen...) and it's full of gorgeous food!

The life of Julia Child, the journey to become one of the most famous and loved cooks - I never knew lot of those fascinating things about her. You can 'feel' her passion, determination and fearless approach to cooking. She didn't believe in 'half-ways' - and that's also why I admire her so much! She made French food available to all of us - rich or poor, amateur or advanced cook, French or English - as long as you want, you will do it! She gave us basic 'tools', toughed what to do to be successful (not only in the kitchen...).

Julie Powell - an ordinary woman living in NYC. Wanted to do something with her life, wanted to persuade her passion (writing) in a profitable career, so she doesn't have to work in a dead end job anymore. Her journey through "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" was amazing! She was determined, brave!, passionate - 536 recipes in 365 days! OMG, I don't think I could be such devoted and stubborn as she was! But, that paid off - she's realising her dream right now - she's a famous writer and a person to follow. She showed us that if you really want - you can. If you want to read the original blog it's here.

I think that both lives, both stories are actually very similar. Both began from the love of food, both ended with a success!

Unfortunately, I don't have my own copy of Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" - and I would love to have it! Tried to find it here in the bookshops, but couldn't get it... You don't have a spare copy by any chance? ;)

To sum up! If you'll have a chance - go to the cinema! Just one advice - reserve a table in a nice restaurant, so you can go and eat something after the movie... Believe me, you will be hungry ;)
