Congratulations to our friend and Santa Barbara chef Pascale Beale. Her wonderful book, Salade, has received even more national recognition.

The Art of Eating Prize is awarded annually to the author of the year’s best book about food (or food and drink together). Where other food books awards involve nominations in diverse categories, The Art of Eating Prize focuses on a single best book. No surprise, the award is sponsored by The Art of Eating magazine. More on the prize here.
