Last night, the 2010 James Beard Award winners were announced. The award highlights the year's best cookbooks in several different subject areas. We at BookPage were especially pleased to see Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc at Home, cookbook columnist Sybil Pratt's 2009 favorite, take home the prize for General Cooking. Get your taste buds ready, because this week's recipe will be Thomas Keller's delicious take on Pineapple Upside Down Cake, from the pages of Ad Hoc at Home. Did anyone try David Lebovitz's Nonfat Gingersnaps over the weekend?
