The finalists: 2020 James Beard Awards

The finalists for the 2020 James Beard Awards have been announced and I loved seeing so many of my own favorites from 2019 make it to the final showdown. Like many other awards, the big gala to announce the James Beard Award winners has been canceled, but we will still celebrate these amazing cookbooks and authors as we tune in online to see who takes home the prize—including the Cookbook of the Year—on May 27th. 

Here are the finalists in five of the thirteen cookbook categories—every one of them is a winner in my book and I can't wait to see who will take home the coveted James Beard medals in just a few weeks.
