Julie Powell on Cooking For One

Pin it button big

In a rather revealing article about her separation from her husband, Julie Powell, of the now-retired Julie/Julia Project, and author of the book Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen addresses the important topic of cooking for one.

As bloggers slowly ooze into mainstream journalism (Powell has been writing for the New York Times off and on for quite a while), I have to wonder if this revealing style of writing is what newspaper readers want.

Domestic drama aside, "her" recipe (it's actually adapted from Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking) for Garlic Soup With Poached Eggs sounds delicious.
