James Beard Foundation Announces 2012 Cookbook & Journalism Awards

Posted by Alison Hallett on Mon, May 7, 2012 at 10:44 AM

... and the Cookbook of the Year award goes to the six-volume Modernist Cuisine, which is cool, because I will never be able to afford it ever. (List price: $625!)

I did just spend $25 whole dollars on a used copy of the vegetarian cookbook Plenty, by London chef Yotam Ottolenghi—because Ottolenghi is not actually a vegetarian, and therefore unconcerned about meat substitutes or protein ratios, it is a vegetarian cookbook that is solely focused on making vegetables taste good. It's pretty great so far; tonight I think I'm gonna try the eggplant and tahini salad mentioned in this NPR article.

Anyway, here's the full list of Beard Foundation winners. I'll second the thumbs-up to Heidi Swanson's Super Natural Every Day: Well-Loved Recipes from My Natural Foods Kitchen; it is one of the most-used of the embarrassing number of hippie cookbooks on my shelf.
