Getting my Julia Child On.

I realise that I am a person who is very easily inspired. All it takes is a good movie, a good book or even a three minute clip to get me dreaming. So when I watched the awesome movie Julie and Julia right before the Christmas holidays, I just knew I wanted to learn everything there is to know about French cuisine. I looked online for where I could by Mastering the Art of French Cooking and I found a copy on Amazon for £10 which I thought was reasonably priced, except for the fact that I didn't have £10 to spare on a cook book. I decided that maybe it wasn't meant to be but saved it to my bookmarks just in case.

Putting cooking in the back of my mind, I carried on with life until yesterday, I went to my school library (which I never ever go to) and spotted it! I was so freaking happy! I didn't actually borrow it on my account (which would have been the right thing to do Tosin), I just took it because I'm planning on keeping it over the summer even though I won't be going back to my secondary school hahaha. I'll probably get my little sister to return it.

I am soooooooooo excited to start cooking out of this. No, I will not be attempting to make all the recipes within 365 days like Julie tried to (I simply do not have enough dedication or time) but like I said I will try as many as I can over the summer! Have you seen Julie and Julia? Do you like French cuisine? If you have or do, let me know!
