Movie: Julie and Julia
This movie follows Julia Child (played by Meryl Streep) during the time she attended Cordon Bleu in Paris until Mastering the Art of French Cooking was published. It also follows Julie Powell (played by Amy Adams), whose blog described her project of making all the recipes in that book during a one-year period. Amy Adams does an admirable job, but she's no match for Meryl Streep playing a considerably more interesting character. It made me want to come home and cook boeuf bourguignon. That would have been a far better choice than what I actually did do: buy 2 pints of Ben and Jerry's and plow through almost an entire carton.
