The International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP), an "association of professionals representing all aspects of the culinary world," is regarded as the authority on food writing. This past Saturday in Chicago, the IACP held their Annual Awards Ceremony where they announced the winners of their 2014 top picks.

Acknowledged as an honor to even be nominated for the IACP cookbook awards, this gold standard of culinary literature voted Stone Edge Farm Cookbook, by John McReynolds, as 2014's Cookbook of the Year. Other 2014 winners included Marion Nestle for her book on food politics, and The Mast Brothers took home a Single Subject win for their extraordinary cookbook on chocolate.

All food-writing finalists can be found here, and the full list of cookbook winners is shown below:
