In honor of my week at Food Bloggers Camp, rent these food movies if you're in the culinary mood (and let me know any of your suggestions):
Julie and Julia: It takes two separate stories--Julia Child's culinary march to fame in Paris--and then, 50 years later, Queens (the place not the band) government worker Julie Powell's attempt to bake, brown and bone her way through Child's cookbook. You can't have two more excellent, likeable actresses than Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. The film moves so humorously and intelligently from story to story that I was disappointed each time it went to the other.
