New Zealand book writers/publishers, Gerhard & Henri Egger have received the Best Meat Cookbook in the World Award, at the prestigious Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.
They accepted the award in Yantai, China last night for their lasted book A Cut Above cooking with AngusPure.
‘We are ecstatic, this book has been a labour of love”. Gerhard and Henri have written, photographed, designed and published the cookbook. Designed to show the wide versatility of a single product, beef, the recipes are interspersed with the stories and history of some of New Zealand’s leading Angus breeders, giving the reader a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes when producing a quality product like AngusPure.
The award ceremony was attended by food writers from all over the world, with 206 different countries participating.
Their last book, Volcanic Kitchens come and join us, won Best Photography Cookbook for NZ and was in the final seven at the same awards two years ago. To have won the Best in the World award this time round is a tribute to the hard work and dedication Gerhard and Henri put into their work.
“It is great to be able to showcase what New Zealand has to offer and the quality of the product that we are able to produce”.
