Two heavies in the food world announced their finalists for the best cookbook published in 2012: IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) and James Beard Foundation (JBF). If you love to cook, love to read cookbooks or just want to see what all the fuss is about in our food world, you can check out most of the cookbook finalists from both organizations. You won't have to spend a dime to look at (and cook from) these gorgeous books. It's all part of what we do to keep you informed, aware and connected to the world around you.
"No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers." --Laurie Colwin
Here are a few from each category. I hope you enjoy the wisdom and talent of these culinary professionals (click on the covers to check catalog availability):
