Some months ago, I came across a trailer of a movie produced in 2002 titled Julia & Julie. I loved the movie from the word go, I looked for it everywhere and even asked my colleague to try and find/download it for me
For months, I searched the internet and never found the full movie until this morning when Marie my friend and colleague handed it to me. I was over whelmed, I stopped all I was doing at the office to watch it. I borrowed an ear phone to fade out all unnecessary noise; even my boss couldn’t stop me from watching it.
The movie centers on Julie, a modern young wife who is bored of her job and the ranting’s of her successful friends and with the advice from her overly supportive husband starts a cooking blog. Her mission is to cook all 524 recipes in 365 days from the cookbook of the cooking legend JULIA CHILD.
The beautiful thing about the movie is that both characters are not professional chefs but their love for cooking is awesome and admirable. I would love to cook for my friends to have that sunny bright face after the first bite, to cook for my boyfriend, a special meal and desert because it is Tuesday, everyone deserves a great cooking experience…..
After watching the movie, I figured I need a challenge ….a fun challenge, so I present to you the
JULIA, JULIE & JAY CHALLENGE
Over the next months, I would try to cook a dish every weekend. This recipe could be African or continental, this could be a cake, a main meal, a side dish or a dessert.
This I would do with your help, send me some recipes from your towns, your countries, some you just know or just heard about….This is going to be my beautiful challenge….JOIN ME
