Highlights for August 1-August 8
Julie and Julia opens in theaters today! I’d certainly like to see it at some point, though it’ll probably be a while if the amount of time it took me to go see Food, Inc is any indication. At any rate, the internet (and the news, for that matter) have been all abuzz about it:
- Hollywood met the food world at the movie’s premiere as told by The Atlantic Food Channel.
- NPR reports that Julia Child’s copper pots have been added to the exhibit at the National Museum of American History.
- Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom, a “Julia-lite, Cliffs Notes” book of Julia’s tips is being re-released…I may have to get that one…I’m suddenly feeling guilty that there’s not Julia Child in my cookbook collection (via Huffington Post)
Last week I posted a link to Luxirare’s pie lollipops…and Bakerella actually made them!
Finally, if you’re looking for a way to change the world, Caitlin of Healthy Tipping Point has started a revolution: Operation Beautiful. The mission is simple: end “fat talk” by leaving anonymous positive messages on the mirrors of public bathrooms (or tucked into diet books, or on a locker at the gym or on a window…). The movement has been getting quite a bit of attention and you can participate today! Caitlin posts the best submitted notes on the Operation Beautiful site. Even if you don’t participate, visit the site for an instant mood boost.
Officially, Relishments is on vacation at the moment…but its a food-filled vacation, so look forward to lots of restaurant reviews when I get home!
