This movie was greatly entertaining! It was funny, serious and had a solid story line that kept me interested the whole movie. It contained so much of what I enjoy - food, cooking, history, blogging, romance, Meryl Streep and I can say I was certainly satisfied.
I grew up watching Julia Child and thought at the time she was a 'loony' old lady with a funny voice. But as I got older I realized she set the standard when it came to TV cooking shows and boy did she know her stuff.
One word of caution- eat before you go otherwise all that food and cooking will make you so hungry you'll hit the snack bar on the way out of the theater!

Many vintage books are out there to be found but few are as exceptional as the Time-Life series, in my opinion. The cover pictures and recipes are all classy to say the least. These are certainly the ones you want to snatch up if you see them at a sale.
28 Volumes with exceptional "how-to" photos. covering foods by primary ingredients, from the simple "Cakes" to the more obscure "Terrines, Pates and Galantines". Now out-of-print, but still considered a remarkable achievement and coveted classic.
