Julie & Julia

Passion. Ambition. Butter. Do You Have What It Takes?


Julie & Julia
Half a century ago, American Julia Child was living in France, and decided to learn French cooking. One thing led to another, and she wrote a book on the art, which revolutionised American cuisine. Now, a young woman decides to work her way through that book over the course of a year, posting the results on her blog. We alternate in time as we follow both Julia and Julie as they get to grips with cooking, while attempting to keep their man satisfied.
