‘Julie & Julia’ Writer Julie Powell Dies Unexpectedly at 49 Years Old

On October 26, the world lost one of the greatest food writers of this generation – Julie Powell. The food writer’s death was confirmed by her husband, Eric, who revealed the cause of death to be cardiac arrest. She was just 49 years old at the time, having celebrated her birthday in April.

In the early-2000s, Powell started writing a blog in which she successfully cooked all 524 recipes in Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child – the blog was named Julie & Julia. It didn’t take long for it to blow up, resulting in several follow-up projects from Powell.

As a result of the blog’s success, Powell penned her first memoir – Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen – in 2005. Her story then inspired a film called Julie and Julia in 2009, which starred Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. This was the icing on the cake for Powell.
