We are pleased to announce the finalists for the 2021 IACP Awards. The winners will be announced on Saturday October 23, 2021 at the 43rd International Association of Culinary Professionals Annual Conference in Birmingham, Alabama
The IACP’s awards are among the most prestigious and coveted in the food industry. We have worked hard to make them the most transparent, diverse, and meaningful food awards, using an Awards Advisory board, committee chairman, and a very respected group of judges, all of whom remain anonymous. Recipes are meticulously tested, a panel of judges add their scores and reviews independently and anonymously, and no one affiliated with IACP board, staff, or judges can enter or vote. See below for information on each award.
The IACP Cookbook Awards recognize the authors, publishers, and other contributors behind the best cookbooks published each year. The awards are divided into a variety of categories and are open to members and non-members.
These awards honor works that have significantly altered the way we think about food and contributed to the field of culinary literature. Any IACP member may nominate a book for inclusion in the culinary classics hall of fame.
The Digital Media Awards are bestowed across nine categories of digital content, including blogs, television, video, audio, and other digital forms. Both members and non-members are eligible to enter these awards.
These honorees are chosen for their passion and impact in the food community. These awards are intended to acknowledge those individuals or institutions who have shaped the culinary scene in the city or region that hosts each IACP conference. The honorees are selected by a group of industry leaders whose primary role is to observe the food scene as a whole.
