2007 James Beard Awards

The winner in Asian Cooking and the winner in Baking are already on my shelves. I think The Essence of Chocolate by John Scharffenberger and Robert Steinberg needs to join them.

In non-cookbook categories, Leite's Culinaria (linked in the sidebar to the left) won the website award.
