Julia Child, bestseller

(article, Culinate staff)

For those of you who thought that (a) "Julie and Julia" was just a chick flick, and/or (b) that anybody who goes to see it must already own a copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, think again. The movie, released earlier this month, has pushed Child's classic cookbook to the top of the national bestseller lists. And for those who think that the old-fashioned paper book is dead, take heart from the fact that a 48-year-old doorstop with more than 700 recipes costing 40 bucks is suddenly popular.
