Perhaps I could but I don't have a decent kitchen, and if I did I would probably be cooking Asian food at least half the time.

I don't know about any blog or movie. I've got the book, bought it because I borrowed a copy from the library and thought it was great (I'll buy my own copy of any cookbook I like that much) and I've got the rest of my life to pick and choose which recipes to cook.

Another thing, I don't buy cookbooks just for recipes, and of course I think most everybody would agree that Julia explains and shows a lot of interesting cooking techniques. I read cookbooks like that and then often instead of cooking the recipes I incorporate the ideas into my own recipes. Her book is worth reading for that alone, although the recipes are good too.

Greg, I was just making reference to the Julie and Julia blog and subsequent movie of the same name starring Meryl Streep as JC.

The blogger, Julie, set a goal of preparing every recipe in the book in 365 days.

Oh I see now. Yeah, I guess I heard of it. Well I hope for the blogger's sake that the recipe has no more than 365 recipes.

I can understand why a blogger would do that. It's a clever idea to build traffic and gain followers. There's nothing like trying to break some kind of record or meet some kind of challenge.
