James Beard Award and NCIBA Nominations

What a great week at the Blue Chair Fruit headquarters! The Blue Chair Jam Cookbook has received a nod from the James Beard Foundation, nominated for Best Photography! To say this is a big deal would be a dramatic understatement. We’ve got our fingers crossed for May, and feel more appreciative than ever of Sara Remington‘s beautiful photography!

The Blue Chair Jam Cookbook is also a finalist for an NCIBA award, for Best Food Writing! We are forever grateful to the independent bookstores and booksellers who have supported us and the cookbook, and are deeply moved at this nomination. These people really know their books, and their support is a high honor indeed.

We’re on cloud nine over here! We’ve come to feel like this cookbook is our baby, and we’re so darn proud at all the success it’s achieving out in the world!
