Julie and Julia

Question... Has anyone seen the movie Julie and Julia?
Well I watched it on the weekend and I am a little behind the times I know! however I was absolutely was fascinated from beginning to end.
For those readers that haven't scene it it is about this young woman (Julie)sick of the everyday cycle of life and wanted to do something that she loved and enjoyed for a living and not get stuck into a boring 9 till 5 journalist job.

To cut a long story short she decides to Cook every recipe in the french masterpiece of a cookbook written by none other than Julia Child.

Julia child was an American Chef born the eldest of 3 in California.
She is recognized for bringing French cuisine to the American public then the world with her debut cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

Mastering the Art of French Cooking is for both experienced cooks and beginners who love good food and long to cook, braise and bake a selection of true authentic french dishes.
Traditional favorites such as beef bourguignon, bouillabaisse, and cassoulet are featured, as are instructions on how to prepare vegetables in a more appetizing way than that of the 1960s American kitchen.
The cookbook includes 524 recipes and the aim for young Julie in the movie is to cook every recipe in the book and write a blog about her cooking journey and adventures!

It is a really inspirational movie and Julia Child herself is a remarkable woman who is inspirational in her own right.

It got me to thinking that this may be a challenge that I would enjoy but I would never know where to start Or what challenge to do.
So if by some odd chance anyone happens to read this and wants to encourage me to do something any suggestions and ideas would be greatly appreciated on how I could spice up my passionate adventures.

But until my next passionate foodie blog I hope u all see the movie!
