This item appeared in today's Press Democrat:
"Julie Powell was bored with a dead-end job and living in a tiny apartment in Queens, when she took up a deranged challenge: cooking all 524 recipes of Julia Child's 1961 classic, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking," in one year. Powell turned the project into a hilarious blog, and eventually, into a book, 'Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen.'"
Readers were then invited to join the author for lunch at the Santa Rosa Junior College Culinary Cafe, which will prepare a special meal using recipes from Julia Child's classic. I called right away to reserve a spot, but of course it was already full.
Perhaps we should all read the book. It might be some kind of food blogger's bible.
