Start of a new year, start of a new book. Time to lay the Naked Chef to rest and embark on the next book!
Well you may not have seen the film or read the book, but Julie and Julia is a true story based on the online memoir of Julie Powell…
Ephron’s screenplay is adapted from two books: My Life in France, Child’s autobiography, written with Alex Prud’homme, and a memoir by Julie Powell. In August 2002, Powell started documenting online her daily experiences cooking each of the 524 recipes in Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and she later began reworking that blog, The Julie/Julia Project.
Nichola saw this film on one of the long flights en-route for a surprise visit to the UK and really liked it. And it got her thinking…. “maybe I should cook every single Jamie Oliver recipe – EVER!”.
So this is the start of that project, starting with book 1 – ‘The Naked Chef’ – and in time moving on to the others.
This is good news for Graham, who just has to sit back and reap the rewards of having a wife who just LOVES to cook!!
