Dining Well is a blessing of God
We truly enjoyed the movie Julia & Julia. Well acted, human interest, and life affirming. For me, Julia Child meant the Leave it to Beaver generation of my parents. She was black and white TV. I was so amused they showed the SNL Classic hand bleeding spoof. I found the development of both stories very complementary. We both wondered how the Childs could eat the way they did, smoked like fish, never exercised, and lived into their 90s. Viva La France.
We have some precious friends who enjoy dining out well, and we have thoroughly enjoyed the experience of several courses, and eating slowly with good conversation and delectable entrees.
We already have enough cook books and so we are not joining the masses who are being reintroduced to French Cooking, and that's OK. See the movie and understand why Meryl Streep and Amy Adams are national treasures.
