Last week, the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) announced the finalists for their 2009 cookbook awards. The awards are broken into thirteen categories each listing three finalists; yup nearly 40 books! To celebrate the IACP nominations Project Foodie has a bunch of activities planned from now through the April 4th announcement of the winners. Join us in the celebrations by checking out the books, voting on the books and reading our guest blogging by selected nominees. Here are the details:
The Project Foodie IACP 2009 Cookbook Nominations Guide (see below). Our IACP cookbook nominations guide is aimed at providing you information about each of the nominees including helping you figure out which of the books you will enjoy. The cookbook nominations guide includes the list of nominees along with links to reviews of the books from a variety of sources including top magazines, newspapers and bloggers. But, wait it has even more, since recipes are one of the best ways to check out cookbooks, we've also provided links to recipes for you to try! And all of the recipes are part of the Project Foodie Recipe Box so you can save them and come back to them to cook whenever you want.
Vote for your favorite IACP nomination (see left). On April 4th the IACP will announce the winners but why wait for that! Vote now and tell us who you think should win.
