New Holland Publishing NZ has two titles in 2012 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards
New Holland Publishers hits the right notes again as two of their cookbooks have been announced as winners in the national rounds of the 2012 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards, convened in, arguably, the world’s gourmet capital, France.
Bangers to Bacon: A New Zealand guide to making, cooking and using sausages and cured meats by young Auckland chef and restaurateur, Jeremy Schmid, has scooped the Best Single Subject Cookbook in New Zealand. Bangers to Bacon is a practical and accessible guide to making your own sausages at home, full of simple step-by-step recipes from the top charcuterie chef, complete with mouth-watering photography by Devin Hart.
The family friendly gluten-free cookbook by mother of four, Sarah King, has been selected as the Best Health and Nutrition Book in New Zealand. With coeliac disease and gluten-intolerance on the rise as our food processes change, the aptly-timed release of this book, with delicious adaptations of Kiwi favourites, means the family no longer needs to miss out on sweet treats. Freelance photographer Devin Hart has already established his presence on the food scene with his arresting photography.
Both books will now go on to compete with other country winners in their categories for the Best in the World, winners of which will be announced on Saturday 23rd February 2013 at Le Carrousel du Louvre, under the Pyramid of the Louvre Museum, during the Paris Cookbook Fair.
The prestigious Gourmand World Cookbook Awards were founded by Edouard Cointreau in 1995 and every year they honour the best food and wine books around the globe, with several thousand books from over 150 countries being entered. New Holland is no stranger to success at the awards, with a number of its books over the years having gone on to win Best in the World in their categories.
