The shortlist for the “Best in the World” at the Gourmand World Cookbook 2014 Awards which will take place in China during the Beijing Cookbook Fair, 19-21 May, have been announced. Thirteen Irish cook books have qualified in six of the different categories.

The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards were founded in 1995 by Edouard Cointreau. It is free to enter the competition and open to publishers in all languages and countries. The Gourmand Awards celebrate global cookbook and wine book publishing and it features many world renowned chefs each year. There is also a focus on self-published books which is considered the fastest growing segment in publishing today.
 
The founder and president of the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards, Edouard Cointreau, was born into the families of Cointreau Liqueur on his dad's side and Cognacs Frapin and Remy Martin on his mum's side. His family has had vineyards since 1270 so he should know a thing or two about food and drink!
 
The six categories that the Irish Cookbooks qualified in, are: Best Authors & Chefs, Publishers, World Cuisine, Lifestyle, Body & Soul, Subjects and Charity & Fundraising.
