William & Mary

Hey guys - so I'm going to be here Monday, for anyone who happens to be in the neighborhood and wants to drop in. This is the almost the first time I've spoken basically unscripted without help of the questions/taunts of others, so it's going to be an experiment. I'll probably need a drink afterwards. Join!

You'll be really good. Voluntary interested book-smart students make for a great audience. All you have to do is deliver the goods, and you have the goods to deliver. They will
want to know about being a writer, finding your career, finding your voice, whether selling the rights to your book for a movie is selling out, etc. Plus you're funny.

I'm a senior at W&M and my roommate and I can't wait for Monday night! Don't be nervous at all; W&M students don't bite. We're the "voluntarily interested book smart students," remember?

Btw, my roommate and I love your story and would love to have drinks with you after your talk!

hi julie,
saw the movie last night and loved it. You and Meryl channelling Julia can take on my kitchen any night. I have never blogged before so my virginal blogging efforts might be a little trite but thought i would offer not a comment on the cooking - but a recipe for your partners poor suffering stomach. tell him to try two days without any gluten whatsoever and see if it works. Two days is not hard. I love every food on the planet - save a few of the more exotic offal cuts and enjoy most things that can be done with a wine or cocktail glass and a bottle of grog but spent last summer holiday in misery with what felt like a fucking bowling ball under my rib cage. Anyway many tests later and a suggestion from the gastroenterologist and bingo. I pick my times to be bad and know how much of a good cake i can eat before i relive it all night and have to make Pariet my best friend.
Hope your talk goes well. Have not had time to read all the blogs but will get to them.
Tracy, your Aussie fan!

Dear Chef Julie Powell, After seeing 'your' movie for the second time, last night, I 'Wikipedia-ed' (is that a should be) you, and found your blog. This comment has nothing to do with your visit to W&M because I live in Europe. Moi? I am a singer, actor and a writer and even sometimes I cook for friends, albeit only vegetarian...that is, my cooking not my friends. Why I write: Thank you so very much for having inspired the wonderful, lovely,touching, 'real' movie, esp in time of so much violence and dsysfunctionalism in this world and in films. I know you had little to do with cast selection but all your work, was in fact the 'raison d'être' for the film's creation. Even the song at the end, 'Time after Time' has re-enterd my repertoire. So from cold - too wintery, too soon- Central Europe, I salute you, Julie Powell. Quelle femme!!

Hello from Brasil! The movie is about to be launched here and I can´t wait to see in the big screen the hilourious story from This two Julias. Wolfed down your book in four days. Cooked Potage Parmentier yestarday night for the first time and it was delicious! Easy AND simple.Except for the "potato squeezer"(is that the correct word?)part - oh, my hands! Thank you for being such an inspiration. Congrats and as for the MAP thing, excuse the clichê, but: Just be yourself, baby!

Julie - This is not related to your visit to W&M but is a question that's ben gnawing at me since I saw the J&J film. In the film where Julie makes this fabu dinner for her friends - she makes a fried bread topped with roated((?) peppers. Where is that recipe in MTAFC? I've been salvating for this appetizer ever since and can't find it anywhere. I'd love to make it sometime. Please advise.

Hey, Molly - every one asks for the bruschetta recipe, and it's not a Julia recipe at all! I don't know where exactly the recipe came from, but if I can dig it up I'll definitely post it.

Blogger Giulia said...

Well, I was just going to say that I'm in DC & if I had a car, I'd be there. Alas.

Bruschetta is a specialty here (lived in Rome), etc. While waiting for Julie, Marcella Hazan is a genius & also Lidia Bastianich. Google Lidia's site...she probably has something on there. I just made some the other night for a 'do' but unless you've got a heap o' end-of-harvest, do as Romans do--w/out tomatoes (yep).

Just wanted to say thank you for your book. I love it. My husband is a chef and we just opened our own restaurant. I loved reading about your cooking, eating and Julia Child. I made omelettes tonight after reading the instructions in MtAoFC. They didn't turn out (no surprise) but launched my husband into a long soliloquy on David Boulod, omelette pans and gas stoves (ours is electric to his horror--he won't hardly cook at home). To his credit, he did eat it with no complaints. Anyway, reading your book is like finding a food soul sister. I'm excited to find your blog!

Enjoyed your talk this evening. I am a culinary apprentice in Colonial Williamsburg, in a training ground program to hopefully work my way into the White House kitchen.

I was hoping to ask this question, but got a little nervous: In my time in the culinary field I've noticed some spite towards Foodnetwork and "celebrity chefs/cooks" from others in the cooking field, have you faced any of this as you have gone forward?

(It's something I know even Julia Child had to face and today, Rachel Ray, who I have to admit, I'm not the biggest fan of Rachel's haha.)

Thanks again for coming to Williamsburg!

Didn't know anything about your blog until today! I saw the movie today, and loved it! :) I love cooking...but can't say I am the best at it. Being originally from England, and now living in Western Australia, I had never heard of Julia Child......we had our version on British TV, Fanny Cradock. Any idea where I might obtain the "Mastering French Cooking" cookbook? I love to cook with butter and cream....however my partner's cholesterol is a little the butter and cream are treats!

Hi there, I have no idea if this message is going to reach you eventually.... but no harm trying...
I just watched julie and julia, and i wanted to read the book now.... but the thing is... thank you, for making it possible to publish the book, to make the movie. Cos I need a reality check. I mean it. I have been too dreamy, and illusionated. I needed to be brought down to earth, and watching the struggles of Julie and Julia made me realise that.... If I want to be a writer, I need to be more serious abou it, so thank you for letting me know that... unintentionally or intentionally.
Just something I wanted to ask you.. somethingssss, actually.
Did you actually throw 3 live lobsters into the pot? Did the lobster really did make that pose in the car?
Well, I know that it IS a truth story.... but I HAVE to ask that. I forgot the rest of the questions, but they are all "did you really" questions.... other than just one.
Both my friend and I were silently wondering why did Julia Child said disrespectful. BUt I doubt you have the answer?

It was great to meet you... I so appreciate you coming to W&M and speaking to us about the dumb FAQ you tolerate as well as answering more dumb questions for us. I look forward to your upcoming book to see your "protectiveness" in action. I admire what you have been able to do with your talent and consider myself lucky to have heard you in person. Though you already know this, Amy Adams was the wrong person to portray you, a dynamic, wild, and warm personality. Thank you again for braving a handful of 20 year old know-it-all students and for answering my question.

By the by, I think the bruschetta recipe was included because it's a recipe one can currently learn at le Cordon Bleu, where Julia Child rocked the boat. If you read THE SHARPER YOUR KNIFE THE LESS YOU CRY, page 133, by Kathleen Flinn, the recipe for an amazing bruschetta is included. I've used it a few times I it is better than it looks. I think you can find it on Google Books.

An awkward feeling.
I am Swede that pursue for the occasion lives in Singapore since a just over year. Last Sunday, I and my man went at the cinema and saw Julie & Julia, without that actually only to know that Meryl Streep plays with and that it acts about French food. I love food, and in particular French food and also France and Paris. The film was so good, "feel good" film.
The awkward is that I recognize myself in the film, a lot agrees in on myself. Starts many projects that never to be completed and since a just over year back has I it blog where I type the life in Singapore and a new recipe each Friday. But it very most awkwardest is that today takes I forward my boiling book that I calls” my bible” the good French cuisine, today in the morning and to may to see that it is just the the boiling book that Julia Child wrote and you repaired food from, it has I had and repaired food from afterwards 1986. Certainly, the awkward is?
My favourite recipes are Soupeàl' Oignon, Boeuf Bourguignon, Sauce Béarnaise and many other of course.
Today I shall buy you book and read!
I am bad to write english, so forgive me.

Hi Julie. I have seen Julie & Julia twice now and love, love, loved it. My friends and I want to do a dinner party and I would like to make a tag similar to the tags that Julia wore when she cooked in Paris. You wore the tag when you had a dinner party at your home, in the movie and was wondering if you could tell me what was written on them. I have searched and have come up empty handed. Please help a fellow cook!! Monique Chauvin, New Orleans

Your movie came out while I was using a creative psychologist as my Julia. Her name is Shelley and mine is Kelly. It is the perfect movie because it's real and it fits the role modeling imaginary friend pattern I was doing. It too was a year long journey and it was precipitated by the stress load of helpless, powerless, and social defeatedness. I love you Julie. You made it easy to express what was happening to me. I can't wait for the movie to come out on DVD. I hope you don't mind but I'm going to change the title to Shelley/Kelly. You rock!

Julie I just saw the movie Tuesday night, I went without my husband so I will be going again with him. I loved the film it had so many underlying messages. What I really enjoyed most was the "Joy of Cooking" watching a meal being prepared with love and excitement and seeing guest devour it with such enthusiasm. Food should be enjoyed, and not used as a purposeful function. I've decided to go back to school for culinary arts specializing in Baking and patisserie and your film has convinced me that I'm doing the right thing. Thanks so much, All the best.

I've been googling your next book, Cleaving, and I'm bothered about your extramarital affair that was written in the book. Is that true? I've seen some reviews about the 2nd book and they are not nice. Even the not hateful ones, just the analytic and logical reviews. The blog was 2003, the book 2005, the 2nd book ended at February 2008. Are you together again with Eric? Even if I buy the book I won't get the answer. Why have an affair? After all the good things that came your way?

Hi Julie,
this has nothing to do with your post but I really wanted to thank you and it's the only place I found to do that. I bought your book a week ago after I watched the movie. I usually don't know which books I should buy, so when I like a movie based on a book I always buy the book afterward. Anyway, I moved from France to the US almost a year ago now, and haven't laugh or even smile that much for a while. When you move to a foreign country it seems that you can't cry or laugh anymore for quite a while, just as if you lost every kind of emotion... And by reading your book, I found myself laughing and smiling many many times. I am so grateful that you gave me this ability back! Your book is just delightful!
Best wishes!

I'm one of your french fans, so to start, i'm sorry if my english is not so perfect.

I read your book "the julie/julia project" in 2 days. An i think it's one of the best books i ever read.

You're an amazing author and i hope to read your next book soon.

A few weeks ago, i began my own story.

But i'm starting with this great adventure and i'm a humble beginner author.

I think there are so many of your fans who made the same request or demand like mine.

But i'm trying my luck.

So, here i am.

I would like, so much, to have your opinion and your advices about my own blog and the different articles that i will send.

If you want, i can translate my texts in english, it should be more comfortable for you (and excellent to improve my english).

Having your opinion about my story should be an honor and a great teaching for me.

So this is the link for my blog :

I hope to be read by you soon.

im still living the movie..
honestly..i have been up for more than 48hrs now,bcuz of my work at theatre and arts..but i chose to conclude my afternoon by watchin the movie n i have cherished every moment..i knw the filmworks is noras good work..but it wouldnt come true without the 2nd link/like half the story board missing somewhere in d ocean which u bought it alive for us..
my mom is a great chef..i will watchin this movie again and offcourse treating her on it sure she will love it, like i did.and may be more.because of the religion -cooking..
im sorry, i hv written more at first..or may be i should dozzing off midway while writing this..

Ciao Julie,
ieri sera sono stata al cinema e ho visto il tuo film.
Sai fino a ieri non avevo mai sentito parlare di Julia Child, ma grazie a te ora sò dell'esistenza di questa donna.
Il film mi é piaciuto tantissimo, anche perché mi piace cucinare e mangiare, sopratutto se sono dolci, ma se tu mi vedessi non sembra perché sono magrissima.
Mi farebbe piacere ricevere delle ricette di dolci.
Spero che tu legga il mio commento e possa rispondermi.

Love keeping up w/ you on your blog - loved your book and loved the movie -- Please come visit me at

As a writer who also went from assistant, ass't tv production exec, tv/film/political writer to someone who now writes in her pajamas (or torn sweats) it might make you smile...

Hi Julie
read your book in 24 hours of laugh out loud joy. Thankyou so much for being such an honest crazy excitable slightly alcoholic twisted foodie sister. I felt like I was hearing a friends story. I had to go straight out to buy MTAFC, eat french food (i love cooking and french food) and then see the movie, which I really loved as well. I am a filmmaker working away on my dreams but sometimes it all seems too hard. You and Julia had just the right inspirational stories I have been needing to help me feel really optimistic about life again - to get through the questioning, the obstacles and just keep on keeping on despite what anyone else might say. So awesome to see an authentic female voice in Hollywood. And so brave of you to see your life portrayed on the big screen. THANKYOU!

Hi Julie
I live in Adelaide, Australia - you've probably never heard of it but that's OK it's a fab place but shhhhhhh don't tell anyone else. Anyway, just finished your book and heading off the see the movie soon. Loved the book and I'm sure I'll feel the same about the movie though Amy Adams is not how I pictured you - I must go and google pics of Julie Powell to see the real you. PS are you going on with the baby thing?

Thanks to DR DOHGO your product is incredible it was hard to believe how quickly my mom was able to remove and cured this ALS that has been lingering over 2 years, I've tried several time searching for something that will work for my mom because she was passing through allots , though I didn't believe and follow the medical report "that there was no ALS cure" I stick to my faith that all problem has a solution, as I speak my mother have fully recovered and she is at the age of 52 and still have the ability and energy to walk around the house more than before. I am very glad I found your mail before everything could went bad, so my mother fight were victorious.
