Also, two of our HGD/Touchwood cookbooks have won the World Gourmand cookbook awards:
Cedar and Salt: Vancouver Island Recipes from Forest, Farm, Field and Sea by Acken and Emily Lycopolus won in the Food Tourism–Countries and Regions category. Featuring more than 100 homegrown, modern recipes that showcase the most treasured local ingredients from Vancouver Island’s unique and beloved terroirs, this collection of recipes is a thoughtfully curated, beautifully photographed cookbook that puts the taste of Vancouver Island on a pedestal and then brings it to your plate.
Island Craft: Your Guide to the Breweries of Vancouver Island by Jon Stott won in the Beer category. This is the ultimate beer-lover’s road trip from Victoria, bc’s craft beer capital, to Campbell River. Island Craft collects Stott’s interviews with nearly forty breweries and brewpubs—which he visited in 2018—into a timely exploration of the vibrant and growing craft beer scene on Canada’s west coast.
