I grew up watching Julia Child (my mother has had Mastering the Art of French Cooking since before I was born). Some of her recipes are very hard and time-consuming, some are surprisingly easy, and I've enjoyed every one I've eaten. (It also came in handy once when a nice French beef cut randomly showed up at the store, as my mother bought it, knowing Julia would tell her what to do with it.) Julie and Julia is a whiny book - people should definitely skip it for the movie.
