We are very happy and proud to announce that Pasión por el Café, written by IACP member Patricia McCausland, has won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award for "Best Single Subject" in Latin America. The book will now be competing for the "Best in the World" Award. The results will be announced on April 7 in Beijing, China.
Patricia is of Colombian origin but moved to Panama seven years ago and is an active member of the Panamanian IACP group. She is passionate about coffee and travelled the coffee plantation regions of Colombia and Panama while conducting research for this book.
Her first book, Secrets of Colombian Cooking, was published in the United States after she met her agent during the 2002 IACP Conference in San Diego.
