The Cookbook Library 613x800 pixelsI am so happy to announce that my most recent book, The Cookbook Library: The Cooks, Writers, and Recipes That Made the Modern Cookbook (University of California Press 2012), has received  the Jane Grigson Award for distinguished scholarship and depth of research and the Culinary History Cookbook Award. Both are from the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP). It is an honor to receive not one, but two awards from the IACP. The Cookbook Library has been a labor of love for me and my husband Mark. We’ve been collecting cookbooks for all the nearly fifty years of our married life. To win this award is one of the greatest achievements of my career.
