Winning Cookbooks

(Libraries, Books, Reading, National Media, “Best of” Lists) Permanent link

Cookbook awards were recently announced by the International Association of Culinary Professionals. More than 500 titles were entered in seventeen categories.

I’m pleased we already have many of the winners in our collection. To name a few you might want to put on hold or look for next time you are here:

• In the “American” category: The Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern

• “Baking: Savory or Sweet” category: Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-in-Your-Mouth Cookies

• “Children, Youth and Family” category: Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners

• “Compilations” category: The Essential New York Times Cookbook

Cookbooks are popular. We are restocking our current display of “grilling” books daily. Although the many food and cooking sites on the internet make it easy to find a particular recipe, it’s not the same as leafing through a new cookbook with mouthwatering photos as you get inspired to try some new recipes and make the grocery list.

Browse our cookbooks on line or on the shelf.

There's nothing I love more than browsing KPL's cookbook collection. I usually have two to three checked out at any given time!

I love the Internet for a quick look up of something (like the Ramen Noodle/Broccoli Slaw I made yesterday), but for a really good recipe, I always resort to books.
