Bon Appétit!

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.
