Cooking gone astray, Aug. 8 2009
I was looking for a light read and thought that "Julie and Julia: My year of cooking dangerously"would fill the bill. What a disappointment! Full of swearing. What could have been a good caper in the cooking world turned out to be boring and borish. I read it in earnest to begin with and then gave up and skimmed the rest. The film could be amusing with Meryl Streep playing Julia Child. Too bad a film has not been made about Julia Child's life. Now that would be interesting.
