Julie & Julia Avalanche on The Daily Beast
A little Julie & Julia coverage is fine — it would be dereliction of duty otherwise!
But damn The Daily Beast's food-related subsite Hungry Beast has gone completely bonkers for the movie. Their coverage totals 16 fucking stories on its home page, either directly- or loosely- connected to Julia Child, with posts written by Julie Powell herself.
This level of media saturation makes us want to say GO JOE.
Update Holy crap, we missed something important: The right-hand top-most story, "The Right Tools for the Job," is not a story but instead a full-on advertorial written by "Daily Beast Promotions" that channels Julia Child to sell some potato peelers: "What does it take to make a confident cook? OXO brings you the right tools that make all the difference. A simple potato ricer turns a soup into a masterpiece, and reminds us why Julia Child set a generation of cooks on fire." Shameless.
