Now that the Oscars are over we can turn our attention to
cookbook award season. Two have already been announced,
the Gourmand and the Food52
Piglet Contest, but the two most prestigious are coming
up - the James Beard Foundation and the IACP.
And the IACP is especially exciting. Below you'll see the list

our activities (both Jane and Fiona will be attending) at the IACP Conference in
San Francisco in early April:

the Eat Your Books Award to the winner of the
General Category in the cookbook contest.

have a booth and many cookbook authors will be available to sign
books and meet their fans.
