Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously by Julie Powell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was one of Julie's "bleaders", and my parents watched Julia Child (as did I when I was younger), so reading this was an interesting mix of "oh, so that's how you turn a blog into a book deal" and "oh, so that's how she made it" moments. As anyone who occasionally tries exciting recipes knows, reading cookbooks is a balance between the easy, the simple and the never-gonna-try-it. Julie's year-long battle with MtAoFC is truly impressive (and while I loved the movie, the book's better).
