Vegan Cookbook Wins Gourmand Award

Australia's plant-based Food as Medicine cookbook named national winner by the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.

Australian vegan cookbook Food as Medicine: Cooking for Your Best Health by Sue Radd was named the national winner in the “Best Health & Nutrition Book” category of the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. The competition draws entries from 60 nations every year, and the health category is the “most crowded” according to publishing company Signs Publishing book editor Nathan Brown. “This wonderful book is a delight for the reader,” Gourmand World Cookbook Awards jury president Edouard Cointreau said after announcing the winners. Published in October, the book contains 150 plant-based recipes and insight into scientific research that supports the health benefits of eschewing animal products. As a national winner, Food as Medicine qualified to compete on the international level of the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in May. Last year, Han Kang’s The Vegetarian—which explores themes about eating animals and culture in South Korea—won the prestigious Man Booker International Prize.
