Julie & Julia opens on Friday and many blogs are throwing their two cents in (A movie about a blogger? Go figure.)
Julia Child was the bomb! Did you know she was in the OSS (the precursor to the CIA) during World War II? Well, she was and she helped develop a shark repellant! Michael Pollan wrote a great essay involving Julia and the current state of food television in yesterday’s New York Times Magazine. If, like us, you’re a little too young to properly remember Julia, check out the video below from “Julia Child & Company”, her late 70s cooking show. In a word: charming.
Also, here’s Julia Child’s recipe for Cinnamon Toast Flan.
