Prelude to the Keri-Julia Project

Doesn't quite have the same ring to it as the Julie-Julia Project. The only thing I don't like about this ladie's idea is that I didn't come up with it first. 536 recipes in 365 days? Seriously? I love the idea however I'm just not that ambitious. Plus, all that butter will be bad bad bad for my other goals. 

How about 365 days, 25 recipes?  Julia's book is on my Christmas list along with a book by Thomas Keller.  Plus I probably own 30 cookbooks already.  I'm excited to give it a go, even if it is on a much smaller scale than the original.  Stay tuned.  Maybe like Julie I'll start talking about myself in the third person, however, Keri thinks that would be a douche bag thing to do.

The Book:
"Mastering the Art of French Cooking". First edition, 1961. Louisette Berthole. Simone Beck. And, of course, Julia Child. The book that launched a thousand celebrity chefs. Julia Child taught America to cook, and to eat. It’s forty years later. Today we think we live in the world Alice Waters made, but beneath it all is Julia, 90 if she's a day, and no one can touch her.
 The Contender:

Government drone by day, renegade foodie by night. Too old for theatre, too young for children, and too bitter for anything else, Julie Powell was looking for a challenge. And in the Julie/Julia project she found it. Risking her marriage, her job, and her cats’ well-being, she has signed on for a deranged assignment.

365 days. 536 recipes. One girl and a crappy outer borough kitchen.

How far will it go? We can only wait. And wait. And wait…..

The Julie/Julia Project. Coming soon to a computer terminal near you.
