The James Beard Foundation Awards for cookbooks were announced in May, and I have been waiting for my library to shelve the winner for the Cookbook of the Year: Modernist Cuisine by Nathan Myhrvold with Chris Young and Maxime Bilet. Since this is a six volume tome, priced at over $400, I may have a long wait.
Gabrielle Hamilton also won for the Writing and Literature category. If you have not yet read Blood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef, check out my review – here
“There are two things you should never learn to do with your father: learn how to drive and learn how to kill a chicken.” Gabrielle Hamilton
