Bon Appetit !

From life/blog to the page . . .

From page/cyberspace to the screen . . .

Brilliant Nora Ephron (When Harry Met Sally, You've Got Mail) has written and directed, Julie & Julia, a story about two women--Julia Child, Master Chef and author of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and Julie Powell, a woman who wrote a blog (and later a book) documenting her vow to cook her way through Child's book, 524 recipes in 365 days. Wow! The film cuts back and forth between the lives of these two women foodies, living and cooking in different eras. Like the books and blog upon which this film is based, Julie & Julia explores the ways in which passion, hunger and ambition fuel our lives. Oh, and it's about love, too. Food, love and the stories of lives well-lived . . . on the page, on the screen or in real life, it doesn't get much better than that. Delicioso!
