With the advent of the movie Julie & Julia we thought you would be interested in reading the books that inspired the movie, and more books celebrating Julie and Julia.

Author Photograph of Julie Powell About Julie Powell:

I was born and raised in Austin, Texas. After graduating from a northeastern liberal arts college with an incredibly useful double major in theater and fiction writing, I embarked, with husband-to-be Eric in tow, upon a seven-year foray into New York City's dizzying wealth of temp jobs. This enlightening tour of desperate dead-end jobs culminated in a year-long blogging endeavor, "The Julie/Julia Project," which ended in late August of 2003. I now write in my pajamas for a living--long may this career path continue. I live in a "loft" in Long Island City, Queens, with my long-suffering husband, three cats, one snake, and a 110-pound dog named Robert.

Julie and Julia--mass market edition--movie cover

Julie & Julia

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 and saved her soul.

Julie Powell is 30 years old, living in a tiny 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 worn, dog-eared copy of Julia Child's 1961 classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and she will cook all 524 recipes more...

About Julia Child:

Julia Child was born in Pasadena, California. She graduated from Smith College and worked for the OSS during World War II; afterward she lived in Paris, studied at the Cordon Bleu, and taught cooking with Simone Beck and Louise Bertholle, with whom she wrote the first volume of Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961). In 1963, Boston's WGBH launched The French Chef television series which made Julia Child a national celebrity, earning her a Peabody in 1965 and an Emmy in 1966. Several public television shows and numerous cookbooks followed.

Julia means more to us than than we can say. In 2002, for her 90th birthday, we held an essay contest. Our customers sent us their fondest memories of Julia and told us how she touched their lives. We compiled these letters, emails, and cards into a book and sent them to Julia as a birthday tribute. To read a select few of these essays, click here...

My Life in France

Julia Child singlehandedly awakened America to the pleasures of good cooking with her cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking and her television show The French Chef, but she didn’t know the first thing about cooking when she landed in France.

Indeed, when she first arrived in France in 1948 with her husband, Paul, she spoke no French and knew nothing about the country itself. But as she dove into French culture, buying food at local markets and taking classes at the Cordon Bleu, her life changed forever. Julia’s unforgettable story unfolds with the spirit so key to her success as a cook and teacher and writer, brilliantly capturing one of the most endearing American personalities of the last fifty years.
