Dining at the White House Named Book of the Year Finalist
Dining at the White House, by former White House Chef John Moeller, is one of 12 cookbooks that were recognized as "groundbreaking" by the magazine's 16th Annual Book of the Year Awards.
The book gives an insider's view of dining at the White House as Chef John Moeller describes his most memorable moments cooking for three First Families, for world leaders like Tony Blair and Nelson Mandela, and for famous guests like Julia Child and Sophia Loren. It includes over 100 recipes for one-of-a-kind dishes featuring his trademark use of fresh, seasonal ingredients inspired by his classical French training with an American twist. Useful chef notes help adapt fine French cooking techniques for the home cook.
Mike Lovell, Publisher-LifeReloaded Specialty Publishing, said "We are honored to have one of our titles recognized. We take great pride in the quality of our work. We worked with Chef John Moeller for three and a half years before the book was ready to go to press. A world-class chef must be represented by a world-class book."
A panel of over 100 librarians and booksellers will determine the winners of these prestigious awards. Winners will be recognized at the American Library Association Annual Conference in Las Vegas on Friday, June 27. See the complete list of finalists at Foreword Reviews.
