Wild Flavors is an IACP Finalist!

Congratulations are in order for Didi Emmons, author of Wild Flavors: One Chef’s Transformative Year Cooking from Eva’s Farm.

Last Thursday, Feburary 16th, finalists for this year’s International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) cookbook awards were announced, and Wild Flavors is a finalist in the Food Matters category!

Considered the gold standard among cookbook awards and widely lauded as the most selective in the industry, IACP has been presenting its cookbook awards for more than 25 years to promote quality and creativity in culinary writing and publishing, and to expand the public’s awareness of culinary literature. Winners will be announced on April 2.

What are readers saying about this fun and unique cookbook? Here’s a recent customer review:

“This is an incredible must-have book for anyone out there who likes to know where their food comes from and enjoys exploring new flavors in their kitchen. Recipes aside for a moment, the book itself is beautiful. The pictures pull you into the lush verdant world that is Eva’s Garden, and I have spent hours reading through the charming, funny, and poignant vignettes, stories, and lessons that give the reader a glimpse into the quirky but purposeful life of Eva Sommaripa. …If you are intimidated by fresh herbs (I was), this book will change your life — Emmons writes about each ingredient as she would an old friend, giving unfamiliar herbs like Chervil or African Basil context and personality that will help ease your anxieties. …This is my new favorite book and I would recommend it to anyone interested in food, farming, or the environment!” –BookWorm

Check it out for yourself, and stay tuned to hear about the IACP award! We’ll be waiting impatiently by the inbox to hear the results on April 2!
