Bloomsbury and Absolute Press honoured at annual cookbook awards…

The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards were created by Édouard Cointreau, who has a pretty impressive family tree – he was born into the families of Cointreau liquor on his paternal side, and Cognac producers Rémy Martin and Frapin on his maternal side. Since 1995, the awards have been presented annually in a variety of locations around the world, from Kuala Lumpur to London, and honour cookbooks in 58 different categories of food and drink. They are open to books from any country in any language; in the most recent competition, books from 126 countries were submitted.

Bloomsbury Publishing and Absolute Press did well at this year’s awards. Bloomsbury (incorporating Absolute Press) won ‘Publisher of the Year’ and a number of their titles picked up awards too, including Historic Heston by Heston Blumenthal, which won in two categories. Accolades also went to Roast by Marcus Verberne, Curries of the World by Atul Kochhar, Beyond Essence by David Everitt-Matthias, Proper Pub Food by Tom Kerridge and World Encyclopedia of Champagne and Sparkling Wine by Tom Stevenson and Essi Avellan. No doubt they raised a glass or two to celebrate.
