Julie & Julia & Food

I enjoyed Julie & Julia. A group of us women went to see it and we all had a good time. Meryl Streep is marvelous as Julia Child and Amy Adams is a delight as the blogger who attempts to cook all of the recipes in Julia Child’s cookbook.

I’m reviewing it and had a devil of a time trying not to use any food comparisons as part of the review. I succumbed to the temptation and finished my review with this:

Two wonderful actresses with one good character and one larger-than-life character, a lighthearted script, competetent direction, and you have the ingredients for one tasty dish.

You will be thinking of food when you leave the theater. It’s hard not to. We see the two main characters love their food, so how can we not feel the same?

After the movie, three of us went out for dinner and drinks. I tried Oysters Rockefeller and Steak Diane. Not a cheap dinner, but trying new food seemed the Julia thing to do.  The dinner was delicious and the company good. I wish more movies inspired this kind of activity.
