Julie & Julia. Have you seen it? I was pretty sure I would like it. It's about Julia Child. It's about food. It's about blogging. What more could I want?
Are you familiar with the premise of the movie? Julie is unhappy in her government job. She's nearing her 30th birthday. She decides to cook her way through Julia's Mastering the Art of French Cooking - 365 days, 524 recipes. And she blogs her journey.
I loved the movie. I want to see it again. I want to read Julia's book, My Life in France and I also want a copy of her cookbook. I want to make beef bourgignon.
Before the movie I had thought to myself, "If I were going to cook my way through a cookbook in a year, what cookbook would I choose?"
I narrowed it down to 2 choices. First choice would be The Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook because it is my absolute favorite cookbook and the first one I reach for. My second choice is
the copy of my mom's Farm Journal's Country Cookbook (similar to this one). This was my mom's cookbook of choice. I know I ate lots of recipes from it as a kid. I think it would be fun to cook-thru the recipes that my mom relied on.
So now it's your turn. What cookbook would you select to cook your way through in a year? And why?
And, if you haven't seen the movie yet, put it on your list of must see movies.
