Last night the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) held their 26th annual awards ceremony in New York City. The IACP Awards honor the best in English-language cookbooks, media and food writing across 50 categories.

We were happy to provide the food for this years post-awards reception. We teamed up with some of the night’s nominees, including Sara Moulton, Michael Ruhlman, Claudia Roden, Jessica Harris, Debbie Lee, and Jacques Pepin, to serve dishes from their cookbooks using D’Artagnan ingredients.
