As a foodie, we’re sure you’ve heard of Julie Child, a woman credited for doing wonders for the popularity of French cooking. In the movie ‘Julie and Julia‘, Child’s genius recipes are brought to life thanks to Julia (Amy Adams) who takes itself upon herself to recreate all of Child’s recipes in ‘Mastering The Art Of French Cooking’.
