Blog: Julie/Julia project

Catherine Sleep | 14 August 2003

An amusing blog has captured the attention of food writers around the world. The author is Julie Powell, a young New Yorker who has decided to cook all 536 recipes in Julia Child's celebrated "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" within one year. As Powell puts it herself, "Government drone by day, renegade foodie by night," she was looking for a challenge and in MtAoFC she certainly found it.

The project is now nearing completion but the archived rants and ramblings of an amateur cook who’s set herself a gargantuan task are well worth a look. The language is rather fruity for my taste but it makes for a fun read.
