The International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) are gathered in New York for their annual week-long conference. Last night, ceremony emcee (and Cooking Channel's Food(ography) host) Mo Rocca announced which finalists took home the top nod of best cookbooks of 2012.
Among the winners: Nathan Myhrvold's standout Modernist Cuisine, New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik's essay on eating, The Table Comes First, and New Orleans chef John Besh's My Family Table for the category of Children, Youth, and Family. Perhaps most notable?

Ever wonder what somebody who lives in a pineapple under the sea actually eats? The answer may surprise you! SpongeBob and his Bikini Bottom friends have rather imaginative culinary tastes that range from the sweet — like fruit-filled hot dog buns — to the savory — like cheese-filled mushroom caps. The folks over at Nickelodeon have put together 50 SpongeBob-inspired recipes designed to get kids involved in the kitchen. More edible projects than complex recipes, SpongeBob's Kitchen Mission Cookbook ($12) introduces tots to cooking terms while indicating the recipes' difficulty levels so parents know when to involve their kids. In true SpongeBob fashion, the book is filled with wacky banter between the show's characters, all in the name of foodie fun. Check out three creative recipes straight from the book!
