With the humor of Bridget Jones and the vitality of Augusten Burroughs, Julie Powell recounts how she conquered every recipe in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

Julie Powell is 30 years old, living in a rundown apartment in Queens and working at a soul-sucking secretarial job that's going nowhere. She needs something to break the monotony of her life, and she invents a deranged assignment. She will take her mother's dog eared copy of Julia Child's 1961 classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and she will cook all 524 recipes. In the span of one year.

At first she thinks it will be easy. But as she moved from the simple Potage Parmentier into the more complicated realm of aspics and crepes, she realizes there's more to Mastering the Art of French Cooking than meets the eye.

    La verdad es que leí este libro después de haber visto la peli, cosa ciertamente extraña en mí. Quizá por eso no me ha parecido mejor que la versión en la pantalla, simplemente distinto. La Julie del libro es mucho más divertida y más desastrosa, es más real. La peli tiene el interesante añadido de toda la historia de la Julia antigua, encarnada por Meryl Streep, que es algo que le hace ganar puntos. Es entretenido de todas formas y si la comida es algo que os gusta tanto como a mí, sin duda pasaréis un buen rato con él.
