Five Top-Notch Food Books

Books with culinary writing are very popular at our public libraries. Everything from straight-up cookbooks, memoirs, travel, tv tie-ins, etc.... They all circulate really well among our readers.

For today's post, I serve up a platter of five food books recently nominated for international awards:

The Art of Living According to Joe Beef: a cookbook of sorts (M)
by David McMillan, Frederic Morin, and Meredith Erickson

This Canadian title, which is focused on a popular Montreal restaurant, is up for a couple international awards: The International Association of Culinary Professionals Awards; and The Gourmand Awards.


All About Roasting: a new approach to a classic art (M)
by Molly Stevens

Essential Pépin: more than 700 all-time favorites from my life in food (M)
by Jacques Pépin

Both these titles are competing in the General category of the IACPAs.


Ancient Grains for Modern Meals: Mediterranean whole grain recipes for barley, farro, kamut, polenta, wheat berries & more (M)
by Maria Speck

Bi-Rite Market's Eat Good Food : a grocer's guide to shopping, cooking, and creating community through food (M)
by Sam Mogannam and Dabney Gough

These two titles are nominated in the Julia Child - First Book category of the IACPAs
