Update - the winners have been announced...
Our favorite season is here—Cookbook Award Season!
The International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) 2011 cookbook award finalists have been announced. The awards are broken into seventeen categories each listing three finalists.
To help you figure out which books you might enjoy we've assembled the third annual Project Foodie guide to the IACP cookbook award finalists (Interested in prior years? Check them out: 2010 and 2009).
Our IACP Cookbook Awards Guide provides information about the nominees including links to reviews on the books and, for your cooking (and eating) pleasure, recipes to try from the books.
We'll continue to updated the guide from now until the IACP awards ceremony on Thursday, June 2nd. The updates will include more recipes to try, more reviews and a few surprises. And, of course, the winners after they are announced!
Now, sit back and check out the Project Foodie guide to the IACP nominations.
