2010 James Beard Award Winners Announced

The James Beard Award has been called the "Oscars of the food world." There is no monetary prize, but it's validation for those who make food and drink their livelihood.

I took home a copy of Love Soup last year and ended up buying a copy for my collection. I had no idea there were so many ways to make soup! It's a vegetarian cookbook but meat lovers could always throw in a handful of diced chicken, pork, or whatever dead animal you've got in the freezer.
