One of my favorite independent bookstores, Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks in Vancouver, is hosting Barbara-Jo's Second Annual Cookbook Awards. The staff selected ten titles as front runners in what was described as "a very heated contest." In alphabetical order, they are:

  • The 100-Mile Diet by Alisa Smith and J.B. MacKinnon
  • Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver
  • Cioppino's Mediterranean Grill by Pino Posterraro
  • The Flexiterian Table by Peter Berley
  • Fresh by John Bishop/Dennis Green/Dawne Gourley
  • Jamie at Home by Jamie Oliver
  • Pure Dessert by Alice Medrich
  • River Cottage Fish Book by Hugh Fearnley-Whitingstall and Nick Fisher
  • Vegetable Harvest by Patricia Wells
  • Wild Garlic, Gooseberries and Me by Dennis Cotter
