À LA MODE: Everyone seems to be firing up the ovens this steamy August, or at least pretending to. The classic first volume of Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” enters the hardcover advice and how-to list at No. 1 this week — its first appearance on any Times list since it was published back in 1961. (Merci, Meryl Streep!)
And, I think I'm adding this to my list of book needs:
“Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom,” culled from Child’s oil-?spattered handwritten kitchen notebooks and first published back in 2000, holds the top spot on the paperback advice list.
