Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen

Julie and Julia : 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen - Julie Powell It’s a fine enough memoir. It covers the important parts of the year Julie Powell spent cooking from [b:Mastering the Art of French Cooking Vol. 1|129650|Mastering the Art of French Cooking (Vol. 1)|Julia Child||2897158], and it delves deep into introspection and feelings and etc.– not just facts and events, in other words. There’s humor, and a few excellent sentences that made me want to roll around like a puppy in the sunshine, and though it’s not the best memoir I’ve ever read, neither is it the worst.Also, it made me REALLY hungry.Read the rest of my review at my blog!
