Reel Life: Julie & Julia

Famed chef Julia Child authored 524 recipes in her seminal cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. In the new movie, Julie & Julia, Julie—played by Amy Adams (you’ve seen her in Doubt and Catch Me If You Can)—sets out on a quest to cook all 524 of Child’s recipes. (Child is played by—who else?—the inimitable Meryl Streep.)

Watch the movie to find out if she achieves her goal. Head to Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach if you want to sample the dishes! As a young cook at Four Seasons Hotel Boston, Darryl Moiles was often stopped in his tracks by Child, a dining room regular who occasionally found her way into the kitchen.

In celebration of the movie’s premiere, Moiles, now executive chef at Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach, is honoring Child by concocting his favorite recipes from her cookbook—a treat foodies shouldn’t miss out on. Dishes will rotate on a weekly basis, but never disappoint. For instance, during the course of a week, diners can feast on the Escalopes de Veau Chasseur (page 368) or Sole a la Dieppoise (page 214), followed by Souffle au Chocolat (page 619) or Tarte aux Fraises (page 640). Best of all, diners can indulge, assured that the dishes would have been commended by the master herself.
