Julie,
Do you have plans to be in the Los Angeles Area in the near future? I have a feeling my wife would love to meet you. I just saw the movie for the first time and I really liked it. As for my wife, she read your book and saw the movie on opening weekend. She recently followed her passion for baking to culinary school and is a pastry chef and sort of in an in between phase after following me to London where I am studying law. She is so talented and such a wonderful, joyous and delightful person...definitely the butter to my bread and the breath to my life. Anyway, we will be back in the states soon and would definitely come out to see you if you have signings or appearances or something. Lastly, if you have any thoughts or advice on how to help my wife continue following her passion into a career, it would be most appreciated. Bon appetite.

I'm a late arrival to the comment party for Julie Powell, but I just wanted to give you due props for The Project, the book, and the movie. I'm almost done reading Julie and Julia for the first time and can't remember the last time I tore through something so fast just out of sheer enjoyment...you are a great writer and a fabulous person (because only a fabulous person would use the word 'beshat' in a book) Cheers to you Julie!

Hi Julie,
I have seen the movie last week by chance in plane. Since then I think somenthing has changed in my life. Your movie is absolutely fantastic! I feel completely recognized with your story. Cooking is the best thing that could happen to me after a long day of work!
Congratulations for your success.
I hope I could meet you one day!
Bon appetite! :)

your silhouette reminds me of my cousin karen's. she's bi-polar. i have a theory about people who have the same silhouette but sharing it would only be troubling.

so ... it sounds to me as if all this is leading to a spot on "the next iron chef". is that really what's going on here?

regardless, i hope to get the new book for xmas and have it read by the new year. it's eighth on my list, which is pretty good.

continued success!

Dear Julie, I just watched the movie and I loved it!
Your story inspired me even more to become a cook. Since I was a child my mother used to throw me out of the kitchen because I didn't let her do the cooking because of my huge mess... I thought I was cook what can I say!??!?!?
Can not wait to read your blog from the begining and your book.

Love and butter.

Are you the real Julia Powell? I just finished watching Julie&Julia and I loved it :) I guess I have cooked mushrooms the wrong way also, but I didn't understand how to make them correctly (as my motherlanguage isn't English). The movie was amazing!

It's so good to know that someone who aspired to do something productive actually managed to do so. My husband makes fun of me CONSTANTLY because I never finish anything, so I had to laugh at "the project"...I also had to laugh at the fact that during this whole escapade you were my age. I guess that means its time for me to fish or cut bait eh? This means yet another night of plotting, planning, and probably beginning something I'll never finish. Congrats to your success, however!

bonjour Julie,
je suis française et ne parle pas trés bien anglais, j'espère que tu trouveras quelqu'un pour traduire!
j'ai 36 ans moi aussi et je viens de finir ton livre qui donne une envie folle de s'y mettre. je ne suis pas trés bonne cuisinière mais j'ai de temps en temps des pulsions culinaires qui fonctionnent ou pas mais ravissent ma petite famille. je crois que tu as raison à la fin de ton livre quand tu dis que ce qui est important c'est la joie qu'on prend et qu'on procure aux autres en cuisinant.
je ne connaissais pas julia child avant de te lire, chez moi le livre familial de cuisine est "Tante Marie la véritable cuisine traditionnelle 1000 recettes" édité chez Taride depuis le début du XXème siècle. pas de dessins, mais des recettes courtes et simples qui ne rebutent pas. je voulais juste te préciser que tous les français qui mangent régulièrement de la cuisine traditionnelle (au beurre) ne sont pas tous maigres et élancés, au contraire... le beurre reste bien quelque part !
je n'ai pas encore vu ton film, mais les commentaires sur le blog ont l'air plutôt sympathiques.
merci encore pour ton peps !!

Hey Julie,

So ... I received my copy of Cleaving on Thursday afternoon and was on page 100 by late evening ... what a welcome reprieve from ordinary living your words bring. You take risks in your life and in your writing that I can't help but admire and perhaps even envy.

A word about criticism: sift out the credible from that which is merely passing judgement on your choices in life. Your disclosures are the product of bravery, and I might argue, integrity, that inspire me to let some of my own skeletons out to play.

I'll write again when I've finished the book. So far, bravo!

Ciao Julie,
Im Italian, currently living in France at the border with the Switzerland's city of Geneva.
Im so glad to had a glance at your blog and find out you are exactly as I hoped you would be, after watching the movie last saturday night with my husband! (You might be happy to know what I prepared to dinner, as we watched while eating: turkey's scaloppine with marsala AND BUTTER , onion and pears, mixed green salad and creme brulée)
We loved the portrait of you and your husband homelife..we both felt so similar to you and him, I never heard before of your book and blog but I am also concentrating very much in cooking as a way to sort out myself during this year of being stuck with my career and try to find my own way: in Italy I would be a barrister but abroad, where we are now, im just a housewife: we took this choice as my husband has a really great job here. What made me feel so connected with you is the fact that he is also supporting me a lot in my insane desire of becoming a writer and I always tell him that until im not published im not a writer :-D!
I am definitely looking to buy your books as soons as Ill be again in uk or ireland!
BUON APPETITO!!

Hey Julie,

I wanted to throw my hat into the comment party as well. I'm uber late to the game, just saw your movie on a recent flight, and LOVED it. I'm not a cook at all, and while the idea of cooking pleases me, I have no patience. When I'm hungry, I want to eat, and that planning ahead for dinner stuff isn't my strength.

So I'm not necessarily the 'target' because I'm no foodie, or wannabe foodie. But your movie inspired me a great deal, and when I have a job again, I'm going to go out and grab me your book! I enjoyed watching 'you' or 'your character' deal with issues that I am also currently grappling with, ie I feel like I've mostly wasted my years after high school, didn't go to University, spent a ton of time languishing in dead end jobs, and so on.

After getting laid off, I have been mulling about the idea of making some changes in my life, and while I was already headed in that direction, your movie provided me with inspiration, and affirmation that I should continue to work on this.

So thank you so much for your life inspirations, and for doing it first and paving the way for others to come.

Oh and sorry for hijacking your comments section, I couldn't find an email for you on your site!

Mad props lady, Mad props!

Helloooo I am french, living in Schenectady ( NY) and I am delighted with both your book - Julie and Julia and by the movie that I have received yesterday as an early Xmas present ! Amy is delightful, I love Meryl Streep un conditionally, and, most of everything, I am so pleased by the life "after-war" in Paris, the recipes, the cooking, the duck, the humor, and the cat .. and cream and lobster .. everything !
You had a wonderful idea when you started your blog and your project - juste a question now : do you still have time to cook, now ?

Wishing you the very best for your new book - you are in my favorite

I am writing ( in french ) a good "revue" for your book and for the movie, on my blog Au Jour d'Hui

I caught the film last night and absolutely loved it. I must admit being an old time UK Northerner, I have difficulty in finding the kitchen in our house but my wife thrives on cooking and of course I do on eating the results. I do glaze over when she starts talking to friends with the same interest, but they know that and ignore me!

My name is Sam. I saw the movie on the plane coming from my home country Lebanon for a 3 days business trip in Paris. I just loved it as much as i love cooking and eating. I asked the cab to stop at virgin, unfortunately did not find the book. I BB my daughter in montreal to buy it and post it home. Did not have the time yet to read your blog but will do it during the week end once back home.
I' m definitely your fan.
