Brad Pitt and Angelina weren’t there, but a lot of other people walked up to podium anyway.

The International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) held its annual meeting in Denver this year. As usual, judges perused a roster of last year’s cookbooks and came up with the following winners in the traditional categories. Some of these might be American classics someday:
