I know I sent you all an e-mail a few minutes ago, but I just learned that my book, Discover Chocolate, is a Finalist in the Reference/Technical category (reference books of culinary terms, histories, techniques or ingredients) in the 2008 IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) Cookbook Awards.
"The Awards are the premier recognition of excellence in cookbook writing and publishing. This year, over 450 cookbooks from Australia, Canada, China, England, France, Greece, Italy, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Trinidad and the United States were entered in the competition.
The winners in each of the thirteen categories [ed: there are three finalists in each category], as well as the Cookbook of the Year, will be announced on April 18th at the IACP?s 30th Annual International Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. Over 1,000 food professionals are expected to attend the awards ceremony."
