'Zahav' Is James Beard Best Cookbook of Year
James Beard Foundation Award - Wikipedia
Qui had for a long time been a golden boy of Austin, Texas, a charismatic cook with an up-from-the-bootstraps backstory and a mini-empire of perpetually mobbed restaurants. Now, according to a police report, he was found at home in his underwear, blood on his limbs and face; his girlfriend had a swollen jaw, with a cut and fresh bruises on her arms, and her young son was present at the scene; blood was smeared on the walls and floors; broken glass was everywhere. Qui has denied the assault charges. Culinary stars had, in the past, tended to skate through P. In the year after his arrest, Qui closed his namesake restaurant.

The African elephant holds the earthly record for the longest gestation period, a whopping six hundred and forty-five days of pregnancy, or just a few months shy of two years. This happens also to be the approximate time it takes for an average cookbook to go from pitch to publication. Who could have foreseen a worldwide pandemic coming and throwing everything—including the world of cookbooks—into chaotic, extraordinary realignment? Besides, of course, all the folks who very clearly saw it coming. Major titles set to publish this past spring were postponed—some to the fall, some to next year, some indefinitely—and others were delayed as the spread of COVID put printing and shipping infrastructures on pause.
