What’s it about?
This is a movie about a woman who wants to cook all the recipes in Julia Child’s first cookbook and write about it in her blog. Julia Childs is a famous woman chef. There is a lot about cooking and learning to make recipes. It is also about love and how to make a blog.
What did we like?
We liked watching the cooking and how to make all the recipes. Julia Child had a neat accent and she said “bon appétit”. It was funny when she stuffed the turkey. It was nice when her husband stood by her and bought her pearls.
What didn’t we like?
There was some cursing, and it was confusing the way it went back and forth between the past life of Julia Child and the present life of Julie Powell.
