Reflecting on the first lunch she ate at a restaurant in France, Julia Child called it "the most exciting meal of my life." That scene and Child's quirky, butter-makes-it-better approach to cooking are both showcased in the new movie "Julie & Julia."
As this N.Y. Times article explains, the film's director, Norah Ephron, went to some extraordinary lengths to make sure this movie got it right on all the details of Child's life and culinary exploits. You could even say that Ms. Ephron ate her way through the movie's script.
I am looking forward to watching this film. Child was definitely a one-of-a-kind character who significantly changed the way America looks at meals.
