Drumroll … and the winner is …
You know the drill.
And now the suspense is over, the losers licking their egos, and everyone wondering what were they thinking????
How the judges judge, and why, remains a mystery to me. One of these days I should go over the lists of the judges and the books judged and discern a pattern, methinks!
Until that day, here are the winners for 2010 awards. Happily no diet books held sway. ;-)
JAMES BEARD FOUNDATION AWARDS:
THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CULINARY PROFESSIONALS AWARDS:
International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) nominees HERE. Lots of New Orleans books … and international books, too, with the usual Eurocentric focus for the most part (Portugal, etc.). Winners HERE.
