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?
