A Great Honor!
Mar 19, 2012 | From the kitchen of Rose
I woke up this morning to the brightest, most golden sunshine of the year and felt like something magic was in the air. When I saw the subject line of the email from my dear friends and much esteemed colleagues Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg I thought "why are they sending me a list of the IACP award nominations when they were announced a few weeks ago and I don't have a new book yet." To my amazement this was a different and very special nomination: 2012 IACP Culinary Classics Book Awards Finalists.

I am so very honored to be in the company of some of the most esteemed cookbook writers of my generation. Each has had a major influence on my life, all are/were friends or acquaintances. If I were judge I'd have a hard time deciding. But if I knew that the awards ceremony was on my birthday, I'd give the award to me!
