The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards is the Academy Awards (Oscar ceremony) for food and drinks book. Both happened on the same weekend recently. The GWCA is perhaps not quite as star studded as the AA but the ceremony at the Louvre in Paris was quite impressive.
We are very proud to say that our latest book, Wine and the Environment, won second prize in the category “Wine and drinks books; drinks education”. In other words, the second best book in the worlds for wine education!
The motivation of the jury was this: “The wine world ferments with new and old philosophies and bold ideas. With great ambition and in detail Britt and Per Karlsson guides both the professional and the wine enthusiast to organic, biodynamic and natural wines”.
Our previous book, The Creation of a Wine, won first prize in 2010 in the category “world’s best wine book for professionals”. One first place and one second… we are very proud.
