Cashing In On Julia

While in Half Price Books, a lady asks the clerk, "Do you have any of Julia's cookbooks?"

"Sorry, we're all sold out."

And her republished famous "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" makes the #1 spot on the New York Times Best Seller list - for the first time since it was published almost 60 years ago.

And in my e-mailbox, Gastronomica Magazine is re-publishing their Summer 2005 special issue "featuring ruminations by Jacques P├ępin, Paul Child, Alex Prud’homme and others on the iconoclastic American chef Julia Child." Each copy costs $13, you can check out the table of contents here, it looks really really good.
