Taste Canada Awards October 2018

Taste Canada Awards Celebrated at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel this October. The winners of Canada’s culinary writing awards with a total, 24 Gold and Silver awards were handed out to authors of culinary books and food blogs at the Gala

“When we write about food, we are really writing about humanity and community; about love and death and biological imperatives; and about the powerful connections and similarities between us. Food writing has been as undervalued as the actual work of food preparation. Taste Canada is the only body in the country recognizing the importance of the work of food writers. Food stories are after all, the real stories of our lives,’ said Lindy Mechefske, author of Out of Old Ontario Kitchens, and Sir John’s Table: The Culinary Life and Times of Canada’s First Prime Minister (2016 Taste Canada Gold Award Winner for Culinary Narratives), This year, 91 cookbooks and 50 food blogs entered the competition.
