The Guinness Story wins at Gourmand World Cookbook Awards

18th February 2010

Edward J. Bourke's The Guinness Story has scooped a top prize at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.

The title, which is published by independent Irish firm The O'Brien Press, won the best drinks history book award at a ceremony which was held in Paris last week.

In the illustrated book, Bourke tells the story of the Guinness family and how their brewing company rose to become the most famous Irish export.

Ivan O'Brien, managing director of The O'Brien Press, said: 'We are delighted that The Guinness Story has won this prestigious international award. It is an honour to compete against the best books in the world and an even greater pleasure to win.'

A Pint of Plain by Bill Barich was another Irish title recognised at the event, while UK winners included Oz Clarke and James May's Oz and James Drink to Britain, A Boy After the Sea by Kevin Snook and Paul Young's Adventures with Chocolate.

The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards were founded in 1995 and seek to recognise excellence in international food and drink writing.
