World Cookbook Award for Rachel Lambert!
Rachel Lambert’s book Seaweed Foraging in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has just been declared the national winner in the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2017 in its category FISH. Edouard Cointreau, President of the Jury, Gourmand World Cookbook Awards, said, ‘This book is an intimate voyage to the beaches and the sea. It is well written, and useful. It is a model for books that could be done similarly in other regions and coasts in many countries.’
The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards are regarded as the Oscars of food and drink books, with 89 categories for food and wine books. In 2016, books from 209 countries competed for the awards. Previous winners in English include Rick Stein and Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall, and our author Carol Trewin.
Seaweed Foraging in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly now goes through to the final round of the Gourmand Awards, and will be judged against books in other languages for the Best in the World. The results will be announced in Shanghai, China, in May 2017.
