If you love food and recipe books and fancy a girls night out at the movies or a really good read, buy
Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously or go and see Julie and Julia, which opens on the 11th of September.
The film is written by Norah Ephron (one of our favourite writers) and it follows the true stories of Julie Powell (the author of the book) a modern day secretary and Julia Childs the food writer from the 1950's.
Trapped in a boring job and a tiny New York apartment, Julie decides to cook every single one ofthe 524 recipes in Julia Childs legendary cookbook, Mastering the Art of French cooking. Over the course of a year, she embarks on both a culinary and personal journey, which is mouthwatering, heartwarming and hilarious.
A must for foodies and friends.
