The International Association of Culinary Professionals announced the winners of its annual awards March 5 in Louisville.

Vivian Howard, head chef and co-owner of Chef & the Farmer in Kinston, swept four categories with her debut cookbook, “Deep Run Roots: Stories and Recipes from My Corner of the South.” It was named cookbook of the year, as well as the best compilation in the chefs and restaurants, general and Julia Child first book categories.

Chef-restaurateur José Andrés received the organization’s lifetime achievement award. The native of Spain is behind such Washington restaurants as Jaleo, Oyamel and Minibar and is the author of several cookbooks. He has been outspoken of late on matters of immigration and has been making headlines for his ongoing legal feud with President Donald Trump over an aborted restaurant at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Washington author Joan Nathan’s 1994 book, “Jewish Cooking in America,” was named a culinary classic. The category recognizes “works that have significantly altered the way we think about food and contributed to the field of culinary literature.” Other books recognized were “Authentic Mexican,” by Rick Bayless (1987); “The Cake Bible,” by Rose Levy Beranbaum (1998); “How America Eats,” by Clementine Paddleford (1960); and “Spoonbread and Strawberry Wine,” by Norma Jean Darden and Carole Darden (1978).

In digital media, IACP named Epicurious the year’s best culinary group blog. Lucky Peach took home the prize for best culinary website.

A full list of winners is available at iacp.com.

Howard is to be the featured guest at The Friends of Joyner Library Annual Spring Banquet on March 30 at the Hilton Greenville, 207 S.W. Greenville Blvd. A silent auction will begin at 5:30 p.m., and the event will follow at 6 p.m. Tickets are $100 each and include a copy of “Deep Run Roots.” For more information, contact Rachel Becton at 328-4090 or email joynerfriends@ecu.edu.

The 23rd-century world of "Mortal Engines" looks great: a fabulous and richly textured steampunk dystopia of haves and have-nots straight out of H.G. Wells. Populated, on the one side, by people in frock coats festooned with gold braid, and, on the other, begrimed laborers in goggles and grease-…

Q Is the push to take probiotics just another fad or is there a good reason to take them? AD, Winterville.

A You may have heard me suggest eating yogurt with active cultures if you are taking an antibiotic to help avoid diarrhea -- I’ve been saying that for years. But there is lots more…

It’s an odd-ball sort of bush.

It’s a native species — nothing odd about that — and it was originally restricted entirely to the coast, from North Carolina all the way to Mississippi.

Now, though, it is common well inland within all of these states, and beyond, and appears…

In the annals of potentially disastrous spinoffs, "Creed" surely stands as an all-time champion. Directed with finesse and sensitivity by Ryan Coogler — who famously went on to make the blockbuster "Black Panther" — the 2015 drama had it all: a classically contoured boxing story, a…

She watched the first performance in 1985 when her daughter, Marty, was a dancer. She was in the audience when her granddaughter, Holton, twirled…
