For the Love of Food by Meghan O.

25 06 2008

For the Love of Food is a book that I have bought recently.  It is a book of stories and recipes from the chefs of the IACP.  The IACP is the International Association of Culinary Professionals.  The group has been around since 1978.  It is a non-for-profit organization, and consists of over 4,000 members.  The IACP is the most prestigious international group of food professionals ever, and to become a member would be the best thing that could happen. Members of this association consist of food writers, food photographers, culinary historians, and even cooking teachers.  Members of this group are recognized worldwide.  This book was published by food writers, the food was photographed by food photographers and the recipes and stories about the featured chefs are written by themselves and collaborated with the food writers.  This book is the perfect mixture for learning and to read for pleasure.  The stories are interesting, the recipes are wonderfully intriguing and the pictures are stunning.  Some examples of the chefs featured in this book are Rick Bayless, Carol Blomstrom, Todd English, Rick Tramonto, Charlie Trotter, and Gale Gand.  This book is actually in the bookstore, and I suggest that you should check it out.
