Atlanta consultant and cookbook author Shirley O. Corriher won the lifetime achievement award this weekend at the meeting of the International Association of Cooking Professionals. Corriher has long been the go-to for many chefs and food writers who want to better understand the chemistry of cooking. Her cookbooks, which include “Bakewise” and “Cookwise,” illustrate science in action with recipes that improve by an understanding of how a fat matrix is formed or the role of a reducing sugar in the Maillard Reaction. (Such as mayonnaise and burnished roast chicken, respectively.)

The IACP primarily awards cookbook authors and food writers but also gives out select honors to industry leaders in other fields. Atlantan Alton Brown won for his podcast, The Alton Browncast. Moving a little further afield, Matt Lee and Ted Lee won in the American Cookbook category for “The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen.”
