Calling all Community Cookbooks!

Deadline for submissions is September 25, 2009.

2009 marks the 20th anniversary of the Tabasco Community Cookbook Awards, which recognizes the important role community cookbooks play in chronicling and preserving local culinary traditions. We’re once again searching for unique, outstanding works compiled by non-profit organizations in 2008 or 2009. Three national, and six regional, winners will be selected. Previously published books, which have sold at least 100,000 copies, are also eligible for the Walter S. McIlhenny Hall of Fame distinction.

Over the years, the Awards have honored more than 250 exceptional cookbooks, and the organizations that created these volumes have been granted nearly $100,000 to benefit local causes and charitable programs.

As fundraising becomes more of a challenge in the current economic climate, we hope that sharing this announcement with your readers will give them an opportunity to boost cookbook sales.

For official rules, entry form, and eligibility, please visit, or feel free to call me at (212) 679-6600 x240.

Hottest regards!
