I knew I would like the movie Julie and Julia, but I had no idea that I would love it. The stories, the scenery, the food (!), and of course - the brilliant portrayal of the amazing Julia Child. I can't believe it has taken a big Hollywood production to push me to learn more about her. I grew up watching her show (mostly re-runs), and loved every single one. I am obsessed with cooking shows now as an adult. She has for certain paved the way for so many that followed in her footsteps. Her book, 'My Life in France' just came into my local library, and I can't wait to read it! More on the genius-that-was after I start reading, I am sure.
