If you are a fan of Julia Child's you will know its her birthday today. An admirable woman and chef, who managed to inspire many women past, present and definitely in the future with her culinary skills.
A brief history of her timeline can be found here. One of my favourite movies is Julie and Julia. Based on the adaptation by Nora Ephron, of two bestselling memoirs: Powell’s Julie & Julia and My Life in France, by Julia Child with Alex Prud’homme. It's combines the story of Julie who attempts to cook a recipe out of Julia Childs first cookbook 'Mastering the Art of French Cooking'. She cooks a recipe a day for 365 days and blogs about. It was life-changing for Julie to say the least; where she re-discovers herself and her passion. Along with the journey of Julia Child's life it makes for a very inspiring movie. I hope to read the books someday. Click on images for their sources.
Happy Birthday Julia!
