Andre Simon Food and Drink Book Awards shortlisted

16th December 2009

The shortlist for the Andre Simon Food and Drink Book Awards 2009 has been announced.

Paul A Young's Adventures with Chocolate, Catching Fire by Richard Wrangham and Darina Allen's Forgotten Skills of Cooking are among the titles in the running for the food prize.

The food category is completed by The Italian Cookery Course by Katie Caldesi, Luke Nguyen's The Song of Sapa and The Vegetarian Option by Simon Hopkinson, with the winner to be named in the spring of 2010.

Carla Capalbo's Collio, The Finest Wines of Champagne by Michael Edwards, Jeannie Cho Lee's Asian Palate and What Price Bordeaux? by Benjamin Lewin are the books competing for the award's drinks accolade.

'There are so many fantastic food and wine books published each year that it is a real pleasure for all the trustees to reward the months and years of hard work by the authors,' the organisers commented.

Last year, the Andre Simon Food and Drink Book Awards' food category was won by Peter Brears for Cooking and Dining in Medieval England, while James Crowden's Ciderland scooped the drinks prize.

Restaurateur Michel Roux received a special commendation for his Pastry.
