Meryl Streep and Amy Adams have signed on to star in Julie & Julia, a story about cooking based on the book based on a blog "Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen" by Julie Powell. Since Nora Ephron's directing, it's probably safe to call this a chick flick.

The story follows a frustrated secretary who decides to cook all 524 recipes in legendary chef Julia Child's book "Mastering the Art of French Cooking". In, as the book title suggests, a small New York apartment kitchen. In a year. Given that Streep is playing Julia Child herself, we're guessing that she'll be present during the cooking scenes in an illusory capacity, dolling out life wisdom along with cooking know-how, perhaps. Since Adams proved with Enchanted that she's a dab hand with imaginary friends, this should provide her with no great challenge.

Ephron's directing and also adapting the book, which was originally a hot blog in the foodie world, with a start date of 2008 pencilled in. So you've got a few months yet to learn your bifstek saute au beurre from your oeufs en cocotte.
