June 25th 2009 was the evening of the Guild of Food Writers Awards at the Great Hall in Lincoln’s Inn London
Egon Ronay was the guest of honour and presented the prizes. The Food Book of the Year award went to Heston Blumenthal for The Big Fat Duck CookBook, which weighs six kilos!
Winners also included my friend Geoff Tansey for The Future Control of Food. Geoff has been broadcasting about the effect of dairy foods and meat on cancers such as his illness from prostate cancer.
Here’s a picture of Heston Blumenthal – we talked about the new edition of his book Kitchen Chemistry which has been delayed for the time being – we’ve got the book on our list of useful things to sell.
Hope one day that our books and Nutrition Program will get some recognition – but education resources are somehow outside the loop.
Alaska Seafood did amazing fish canapes such as black cod and seared salmon and we sipped on organic wine from Bonterra Vineyards – the rose wine was completely finished by the huge crowd and its deliciousness appreciated!
