Last weekend, here in the UK was a long weekend with Monday being a bank holiday. We didn’t have much planned and spent the weekend relaxing, walking Alfie and catching the occasional film.
The film of Julie & Julia was based upon the blogging achievements of Julie Powell, who read and cooked her way through Julia Childs book, the Art of French Cooking. The book is now on edition 49, which is a fantastic achievement.
I know the backdrop of the film says it is based upon real events, but was there really a blog? I knew the book really existed because I checked Amazon and the DVD which we purchased last year came with a small collection of recipes.
A quick Google did reveal that a blog did really exist and HERE is the link to it.
