Publisher Description

The bestselling memoir that's "irresistible....A kind of Bridget Jones meets The French Chef" (Philadelphia Inquirer) that inspired Julie & Julia, the major motion picture directed by Nora Ephron, starring Amy Adams as Julie and Meryl Streep as Julia.

Nearing 30 and trapped in a dead-end secretarial job, Julie Powell reclaims her life by cooking every single recipe in Julia Child's legendary Mastering the Art of French Cooking in the span of one year. It's a hysterical, inconceivable redemptive journey -- life rediscovered through aspics, calves' brains and cré me brûlée.

It grows on you

A character I found annoying as I don't like messy cooks, Julie grew on me as she cooked away. The secondary characters are also very funny. Powell is a light writer but can be very precise with her descriptions so the fun is in the details. And you feel glad she has found her calling at the end: there is hope for all of us.

Never thought I'd say this...

But the movie was better.

Inspiring

This book is definitely one of my new favorites. Powell's style of writing is hilarious and entrancing. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys cooking and doesn't mind a few "f-bombs" every now and then.
