I like cooking, I like movies. A movie involving an iconic cook - what could be better?!

The Julie&Julia book was a fantastic read and I identified with the author as she learned to cook-I've had my share of messy kitchens and food disasters. I cannot wait to see this movie!

Ooh! When I saw the first preview for this I was IN!! I love a food challenge and this one with the big J.C. herself---I love cooking, blogging (reading blogs about cooking!)

The story is different...which I LOVE in a movie!

I can hardly wait!

LA's right where we are. It'd be perfect. Oh, and we will be there opening night, so why not mind this recession and go for free! :)

The story behind "Julie and Julia" is really inspiring, especially for amateur cooks like me. From what I've gotten from the trailers, Julie goes to France to learn fine cooking at Le Cordon Bleu, which is mainly populated by males. It's truly admirable how brave she is: Julie is willing to try anything the men do. And then, there's Julia. She is like any of us, feeling trapped in a mundane, routine life. Oftentimes, I wish I found more meaning in my life. A purpose, not just for life, but for everyday as well. I find that happiness when I cook or bake something and it comes out a success! Julia finds happiness in herself through the Julie/Julia Project. That we can find happiness, not just in love, but in cooking and that we can succeed if we let ourselves take some risks are why I want to see this movie. It would transform my approach to life - and give me some tips on how to cook better too!

I would love to see this with my husband since we both loved Julia Child! But we are in Oregon and I am assuming that this doesn't include airfare? ;-)

My Grandmother is someone who I look up to. She is a wonderful cook and role model alike. She is also one of my biggest inspirations and reasons why I decided to persue a career in the Culinary field. I have always looked up to her and loved her cooking.

Last month, my Grandmother suddenly got really sick, and was hospitalized for nearly 5 weeks, due to ruptured air pockets in her colon. She was just released from the hospital a few days ago, and is doing so much better!

Last night, my family and I had a cook out at her house. She was saying "I'd like to see that movie about Julia Child. It looks really cute!" My Grandma watched Mrs. Child for many years, and no doubt picked up a few tips along the way.

My Grandma and I never had a great relationship, which we are working on rebuilding. This is why I would like a chance to win these tickets, to be able to spend some quality time with her, doing something we can both relate to and enjoy.

Thank you so much for reading,

My sister and I have been completely obsessed with cooking since we were teeny youngsters helping our mother out (or mostly getting tangled in the folds of her skirt) in the kitchen, making kebabs and mixing hummus and chopping salads. Since then, we've both evolved into aspiring home cooks, baking bread, roasting chickens, and finding new recipes to try from Julia Child's cookbooks. Seeing Julie and Julia would be a true pleasure for us, and it would be a wonderful reminder of how far we've come since our early days in the kitchen.

Bon app├ętit!

PS: I will be visiting my sister in LA at the time of this screening, so it's a completely opportune moment!

Julia is my heroine!

Neat neat give-away Susan!

Well, I read Julie and Julia (did any foodie not?) and it was OK, but My Life in France was just wonderful -- you could hear Julia's voice through the whole book, and any movie based on that book is worth seeing!

(Did you know that Julia Child grew up in Pasadena? Went to my high school in fact!)

Deborah Dowd said...

What foodie doesn't want to see Julie and Julia? I am hoping to share this with my daughters who also love cooking. Also,my birthday is Wednesday (but don't dare ask my age). I posted about Julie and Julia recently,too!

I keep hearing about the movie then I looked it up and happened to see a trailer and it looks like something I could also get Andrew to see with me.

There is no doubt that Julia Child is an inspiration and role model to many people. She showed countless people that if you try, you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to and not to be afraid of failing.

As a culinary student and an aspiring chef I take her advice and accomplishments to heart and try to tackle every challenge life presents to me with a positive attitude, knowing that Julia Child and many others have accomplished their dreams and goals while people sat back and told them it couldn't be done.

Julia Child is definitely a major influence in my life.
