Bon Apetite!

Growing up, our television spent a ton of time on PBS. Cooking shows on the weekends were a big deal. We loved Julia Child especially. My mom had one of her huge cook books. So when I saw the commercials for the new movie "Julie & Julia", I got a little excited. Have you seen the commercials? It is sort of two movies in one. One part exploring Julia's entry into the male dominated culinary world in the early 50s. The other delves into a modern day woman tired of her job and decides to cook her way through Julia's cook book. I don't know why I am tickled at the prospect of the movie. Maybe it is the intertwining of old and new?

Would you believe I have never seen a whole Julia Child show?! But I am soooooo excited for the new movie. I read the book and thought it was wonderful. Maybe I will wear my favorite apron as an homage when I go see the movie :p.

That would be a fabulous idea!
I did not know that it was a book! ~adds it to the ever growing list~

I love the original Julia Child shows. A couple of years ago PBS put out a few sets of DVDs of her shows from the 60s. They are so fun to watch :)
