We admit it… we’re rather unhealthily excited about the August 7th premiere of Julie & Julia. We read Julie Powell's delightful memoir several years ago when it was released, and grew up watching The French Chef every week on PBS. With that in mind, we’re stocking up on some Julia Child classics: Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. I, ($26) and Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. II. ($22) One confession: we’re not sure we’ll be able to cook & eat bone marrow, (gaaack) as did Julie & Julia, but learning to make a truly great boeuf bourgignon or mousse au chocolat sounds plenty life-changing for us, especially considering the size of these damn apartment kitchens!
