President and CEO of American Book Fest, Jeffrey Keen said this year’s contest yielded over 2,000 entries from authors and publishers around the world, which were then narrowed down to the final results. Over 400 winners and finalists were announced in over 90 categories. Awards were presented for titles published in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Kitchen Dads The Basics received the Finalist Award in the cookbook category.
“The Basics is really like two books in one, the first half is all about teaching the basics of cooking and the second half is over 90 of my easy-to-make and delicious recipes. Doesn’t matter if you are a home cook pro or just starting out, there is something in it for everyone,” says author Cliff Pelloni.
Pelloni continues, “It’s an amazing honor, and I am so grateful the acknowledgement will help increase exposure for the book and cause of getting more people in the kitchen, cooking with their family and friends.”
The book is available on Amazon.
