From the Publisher
Julie Powell needs something to break the monotony of her life. So, she invents a deranged assignment: She will take her mother''s dog-eared copy of Julia Child''s 1961 classic, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking," and cook all 524 recipes in the span of just one year.

This book is more of a cooking blog than anything else. Julie decides to cook all the recipes in the book Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child. Several of her endeavors are downright funny but most are just okay. Julie is slightly neurotic and episodes of making gelatins and not having them set are not worthy of fits. We have all had disasters in the kitchen. We just don't write about them.

I would find it odd that someone wants to cook every recipe in a book but I myself like to try 3-4 new recipes every week. I can not imagine the effort required to work a full day and then come home and cook a gourmet meal. Julie said they were eating late but ... Also if I ate like that I would be an elephant not just gain a few pounds.

Picked up at our Oakville/Burlington meetup that was held in Mississauga!

I absolutely loved this book. I've been on a bit of a cooking binge lately, although not as severe as Julie, but I could certainly relate to her feeling of satisfaction and feelings of anticipation with each new dish she tried.
