A-List Food

Last week, we featured the Academy Awards, which everyone knows as the “Oscars.” What follows the Oscar awards ceremony? An Oscar party, of course. One can’t have an Oscar party without food, and one can’t have an A-list party without award-winning food.  To help you with your A-list party, today’s post features award-winning cookbooks.

The International Association of Culinary Professionals annually gives awards to chefs, culinary schools, non-culinary professionals who have advanced the field, and to cookbooks. The IACP has given cookbook awards since 1986, and, as of 2015, the awards for cookbooks are given in a whopping 22 different categories.

The library has some of the IACP award-winning cookbooks, and we will highlight just a few of them for you. If you want to borrow any of these books, or if you want to find out what other IACP books that the library has, simply ask a librarian to help you.
