Andre Simon Award

2011 - Food book of the year
http://www.andresimon.co.uk The UK's premiere award for food writing. From wikipedia: "In February 1965, Simon established the André Simon Award for gastronomic literature, with a prize of 100 guineas.[4] The Awards continue to this day, judged by the Trustees of the André Simon Memorial Fund.[8] They are joined by a wine expert and a food expert invited by the Trustees.[8] A shortlist of 6 food books and 6 wine books is published in November, with the final Awards made in March.[8] The prize money has increased to £2000 for the winner in each category, and the "Special Commendation" earns £1000.[8]" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/André_Simon_(wine)
