    • *Snort* Heresy, yes, but I stand by everything that I have said. Not taking anything away from ST (which you know I adored), but Julie & Julia… ah, perfection!

      And Meryl Streep: I smell a nomination!!!

  1. I can’t wait to see this, Julie has just written a new book, about learning to be a butcher. I read a long extract in a Sunday paper 2 weeks ago and it was great. Not for Spock though, being a vegetarian.

    • You are going to love it. The lobster scenes were hilarious! Heck, the entire film was one laugh out loud moment after the another – The entire audience I was with were enjoying it just as much as I was. Stanley Tucci and the actor who played Julie’s husband (sorry, don’t know his name) were so good!!!

  2. Oh, and prepare yourself – you are going to want to make Boeuf Bourguignon as soon as you get home from the movies(they make it look soooooo luscious in the film).

    You can find the recipe here. Be sure to read all the comments: people all had the same idea and wanted to make it as soon as they got home.

  3. Oooh! Slaver (that is Scottish for drool btw), must make this. Wonder when the movie is out in the UK? Must investigate…

  4. Totally agree–absolutely fabulous. LOL funny, poingant, inspiring, and terrific acting all around.

    The great thing is that I went with two of my teenagers and my husband, and they enjoyed it as much as I did. That hasn’t happened since Star Trek and HP!

    And you are totally right–I went home wanting to make Boeuf Bourguignon. All books associated with this movie are now on my bday and Xmas lists!

    • The only thing preventing me from making Boeuf Bourguignon NOW is that fact that it’s only me in the house and the recipe requires half a cow. But the next time I have company, this will definitely be on the menu.
