The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen Nominated for SIBA Award

book3The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen, which earlier this year won an IACP award in the American cookbooks category, is up for a Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance prize.

Independent bookstore owners across the South are invited to submit nominations for their favorite “handsell books,” which the alliance defines as “books they have most enjoyed selling to customers; the ones that they couldn’t stop talking about.” Eligibility is restricted to books with Southern authors or Southern settings (“preferably both,” the award website clarifies.)

Matt and Ted Lee’s cookbook is up against Pickles, Pigs and Whiskey by John Currence, who last fall promoted his cookbook at a High Wire Distilling Co. party, and A Passion for Bread by Lionel Vatinet, who’s scheduled to lead a bread-baking class at Southern Season on June 24. Both authors also came to town for the Charleston Wine + Food Festival.

Winners of the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance awards will be announced on “Independents’ Day,” July 4.
