Julie & Julia

Streep sets this culinary caper alight

Nora Ephron’s culinary adventure about batty French cookbook author Julia Child (Meryl Streep) and the New Yorker who blogs her way through Child’s recipes (Amy Adams) is a tale of two courses.

The first – Adams’ kitchen quest – is a half-risen soufflé that even die-hard foodies might find bland.

But Streep’s goose-squawking impersonation of the real Child (spot-on) injects her ’60s-set Parisian portion with lots of tangy flavour.
