The reason why I have decided to write about this film is because For lunch today I decided to make tuna pasta (a simple dish, yes) but for some reason i just couldn't function and it was crunchy and quite frankly, bloody awful...I mean, how hard is it to cook pasta please!? of course, Jake and I laughed about it but seriously I was ashamed.
Every time I clumsily mess a dish up I think of the film Julie & Julia....
I actually think I could watch this film everyday, not just because I think the character Julie (played by Amy adam's) looks like me and totally acts like me in every little neurotic way, Just because I love food, well...not the taste of alot of things (I'm quite fussy...) But I absolutely LOVE cooking... It relaxes me completely. It's so theraputic, just as painting is a way of expressing my emotions, I find the control of cooking somewhat challenging, just like working out a difficult maths equation and getting to correct answer.
I love the outcome, whether it tastes like shite or not. There's always something to learn from.
There is one particular part of the film which I think is a pure illustration of me.... the 'meltdown part'.
The recipe requires Julie to stuff a chicken, which she fails at.
I literally do this...
