Room In The Bowl is a collaborative work between the Food Photographers, Stylists, and Writers of the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP). The book includes essays by writers that convey the passion of Louisiana's signature dish, Gumbo. Myriad photographs showcase the ingredients and the labor of love that goes into every pot. All net proceeds will be divided equally between The Southern Food and Beverage Museum and The Culinary Trust. The Southern Food and Beverage Museum is a nonprofit organization based in New Orleans, dedicated to the discovery, understanding and celebration of the culture of food and drink in the South. The Culinary Trust solicits, manages and distributes funds for educational and charitable programs related to the culinary industry, and is the philanthropic partner of the IACP.
