We already know that both Meryl Streep and Amy Adams are going to be nominated for Oscars for Julie & Julia, right? Let’s just throw that out there since the Academy would nominate Streep for a recitation of the telephone book, and they seem to be equally fond of Adams. In the case of Julie & Julia, however, the actresses have teamed up for a tasty comedy based on true events that is really connecting right now at theaters. In the movie written and directed by Nora Ephron, Adams plays frustrated writer Julie Powell who tries to cook and blog her way through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, while Streep plays culinary matriarch Child. The Julie & Julia DVD and Blu-ray won’t be ready for public consumption until mid December, but already some morsels of information have surfaced about bonus features good enough to eat. There will be a commentary, behind-the-scenes featurettes and cooking lessons from the real Julia Child, Jacques Pépin, Mark Peel, Suzanne Goin, Michael Romano, Steven Lewandowski and Drew Nieporent. Some of the dishes on the chefs’ menu include braised beef short ribs, herb-roasted chicken and butter poached Maine lobster. Hungry yet?
