I’ve just finished watching this fabulous movie for the third time around! The first time I saw this film was back in 2010, I was utterly fascinated by it, but it really didn’t get to me. So it took me for about three years later before deciding to watch this all over again. And I thought, this is such a great story, and I don’t know why it took me so long to really figure it out! For it’s not only yummy, but its a story that is truly inspiring for bloggers, and wanna be cooks like me!
Julie & Julia is a true to life story about Julie Powell’s fascination to this famous cook named Julia Child. Julie is a 30 years old Government Employee, who tends to feel like she’s lost. And then her ever kind, and very supportive husband did inspired her to start blogging. Since she loves to cook, she challenged herself to write a blog about cooking her way using Julia Child’s cook book entitled “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”. Cooking all the recipe’s inside the book for 365 days! Now that’s quite a challenge! And for sure, it has never been a very easy journey for Julie Powell and her husband. They’ve been through a lot, but somehow they’ve made it through. Overcoming a lot of obstacles emotionally, physically, and financially! Which I must say, is very inspiring.
I just love this movie! Of course I do, and that is why I’m writing about it. It’s a movie that is wonderfully made. All the actors and actresses were wonderful, including my all time favorite Meryl Streep who portrayed Julia Child.
I must say, watching this movie really makes me feel so hungry that how I wish that I could just make my way inside the TV, and eat it all! Then there’s the husbands of these two great cooks! I mean, it would really feel like utter heaven to have such a very supportive love one. There’s just something about these two guys! They’re both so nice! Always being there, no matter how tough the situation is turning out to be. They are the kind of men who would really appreciate their wives, and accepts them for who they really are. And supports them for being the kind of woman who knows her own mind.
Cooking is a very tough challenge, and as to what my mother would always say, “Cooking is not about acquiring the best skills; it’s about cooking from the heart. A passion for food”. And someday, I’ll be able to make my way through this very famous “Beef Bourguignon”. That’s for sure! Bon Appétit!
