Letter: Dewsbury food book at world awards

Share this article

Several people have asked how my book Dewsbury in Food and Photos fared in the recent World Cookbook Awards in Paris.

Unfortunately, the book didn’t win (its category was the Charity Cookbook section) but it was an honour even to be nominated.

As I wrote in a previous letter to the Reporter, it had already won the national award for best charity cookbook in the UK, so at least everybody who bought a copy can say they’re the owner of an award-winning Dewsbury book!

Many thanks once again to everybody who supported the book in any way.
