We're flattered- A Movie About Us?!? / by Alice Zhao

So, I didn't realize they were making a movie about Mr. and Mrs. EatADuckIMust! hahahaha. We just saw the trailer for Julie and Julia last night and I'm totally intrigued. Casting Meryl Streep as Julia Child is a stroke of genius. It's based on a real food blogger, Julie Powell, who turned her blog into a book, Julie and Julia, 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen.

This trailer also reminds me of Carol Blymire who set out to cook every single recipe from the French Laundry Cookbook (French Laundry At Home). She's got this incredibly witty writing style that draws you in and makes you laugh at her successes as well as her failures. I took all my cues from her when cooking Jared's 30th birthday dinner last fall. And if that wasn't crazy enough, after she finished that project, she took it to the next insanity level and launched Alinea at Home. We've eaten at Alinea, and that is not something you really do at home! Serious kudos to her.
Have a great Friday!
