Julie/Julia Project

You may have noticed from the links to the right here that I have recently read Julie & Julia. It was light and entertaining. It was also quite an ambitious project for anyone to take on, let alone an amateur cook. Well done, Julie. You rock!

My mother’s own copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking has been in her kitchen as long as I can remember. I have picked it up to skim through a couple of times over the years. But I have never, ever been remotely inspired to take on the entire book. Not in a lifetime, let alone a year! You’ve inspired me to maybe, perhaps “borrow” my mom’s copy for an extended period of time to see what’s in there that does interest me and advancing my own skills in the kitchen ...

Dinner party anyone?!

I've added this book to my Amazon wish list; it sounds wonderful! And what a project! I have enough recipes of my own to try out, nevermind somebody else's!
