julie & julia

Great food film with a lot of dishes. And with Meryl Streep… she makes you laugh every time again. Douze points for this true hommage to Julia Child

good film

Julie & Julia (Nora Ephron, 2009) is a feelgood movie about two women with a passion for cooking. Secretary Julie Powell is looking for a challenge and finds it in cooking all the hundreds of recipes from an old cookbook by Julia Child. Two films for the price of one: a woman in New York who’s cooking herself through a personal crisis and Meryl Streep in a hilarious leading role as the TV-chef Julia Child.

good food

The film is packed with food form the classical French cuisine and some modern Italian cooking. In Julie & Julia over 20 meals are cooked and we've handpicked the best ones, evenly spread over the course of the film.

Cinema Culinair serves no alternative menus.  In case of a food allergy, we advise you to skip the particular course(s). Check this before your order at info@cinemaculinair.nl

great timing

What you see is what you eat, at the same time. The culinary script of Cinema Culinair is leading for the chef and his crew: timing is of the essence. One example. If the leading character in the film eats a bit of sole meuniere at 19 minutes and 32 seconds, we want our guests to do the same. One minute earlier or later makes all the difference between good and fabulous! In the end it’s all about the extrasensory sensation; you see, hear, taste, smell and feel the film.

When is the next cinema culinair of this film? 

Julie and Julia is one of our favourite films. We will screen the film at least two weekends in a year.

keep me posted about the next show!

I'll have what she's having

The scene and the setting are world famous: Sally (Meg Ryan) fakes an orgasm in Katz's Delicatessen, and a woman at the next table is making one of the best film quotes ever, the one stated in this title.
