It's the foodie awards season, and IACP just announced the finalists for its prestigious annual cookbook and journalism awards. Over 500 entries were submitted for consideration in this year's cookbook awards categories, with 52 books in 17 categories selected as finalists via a rigorous two-tiered judging system by independent panels of food and beverage experts. The Bert Greene Awards, meanwhile, celebrate the best of culinary journalism in six categories.
