“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.” – Julia Child

The Challenge:
Inspired by the Julie/Julia Project, my mission is to create the 524 recipes in Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking in a mere 365 days, all the while recording my experiences online to educate, amuse and bewilder the general public.

The Challenger:
Marketing professional by day, Food Network junkie by night, I long for the ability to cook a wonderful meal without the crutch of a recipe card. Certain there are others like me in the world, I accept this challenge on their behalf. Meanwhile, I can’t help suspecting that my husband has ulterior motives in posing this challenge in the first place. (I think he’s tired of doing all the cooking.)

What’s at Stake:
If I manage to succeed, my husband has promised me a trip to Paris. (France, not Texas. I checked.)

Why Do It?
I’ve always wanted to learn how to cook, but didn’t want to spend the time or money on culinary school. Julie Powell has proven that it can be done – but I want to know if it can be done while teaching readers through the experience. I’m pushing 30 and feel there is no time like the present to tackle a new goal. While I realize this whole plan could be a recipe for disaster, I figure if nothing else, it’ll be fun! The feeding frenzy begins August 1, 2010 and will end July 31, 2011.

If I last that long…
