Meryl Streep’s performance as Julia Child in “Julie & Julia,” which opened last weekend, has helped return the late chef’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, a classic published nearly 50 years ago, to the top of best-seller lists.
On Monday, a $40 hardcover of Mastering topped the charts of Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com, easily outpacing a $7.99 paperback of the book that gave the film its title, “Julie & Julia” — Julie Powell’s memoir about spending a year preparing all the recipes in Child’s book. Powell’s book was No. 16 on Barnes & Noble.com and No. 27 on Amazon.
