This weekend, several of us at Fine Cooking braved the threat of blizzards, coming and going, to travel to Denver for the International Association of Culinary Professionals Conference in Denver. The annual conference brings together food writers, cooking teachers, and all kinds of culinary types for workshops, lectures, and of course, a lot of good food. This year’s theme—the sustainable cooking and sourcing of food—made for some absolutely fascinating discussions.

But the highlight for me this year was the IACP’s Cookbook Awards—basically the Oscars of the culinary world—where Taunton’s (the company that publishes Fine Cooking) cookbooks swept the three categories in which they were nominated. Ellie Krieger’s The Food You Crave won in the healthy cookbook category, while chef David Waltuck’s Chanterelle won awards in both the chefs & restaurants category and the food photography category (thanks to the gorgeous work of photographer Maria Robledo).

If you haven’t seen either of these books, be sure to check them out, either flipping through them in person, or by trying some of their recipes here on the site—here are a few of my favorites:

From The Food You Crave: Miso-Glazed Cod
From Chanterelle: Deviled Quail Eggs with Black Caviar
