2005_10_food_juliejulia.jpgGothamist has been a fan of the Julie/Julia Project for quite some time. We were sad to see it come to an end, but at least we knew that Julie had gotten a book deal, so we had something to look forward to. And now, we can revisit our favorite Julie/Julia moments in the form of Julie's new book, Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen: How One Girl Risked Her Marriage, Her Job, and Her Sanity to Master the Art of Living. David Kamp at the New York Times doesn't seem to love the transformation. Although he is quick to compliment Julie on her food-writing skills (she has been published in the New York Times and Bon Appetit since her blog's completion), he still sees the book as too, well, bloggy. "'Julie and Julia' still has too much blog in its DNA: it has a messy, whatever's-on-my-mind incontinence to it, taking us places we'd rather not go . . ." Don't worry, we're still psyched to read it.
