The Guild of Food Writers announces the finalists for its Awards. Yes! My book has been shortlisted
Updated: May 21, 2020
How we fell in love with Italian food has been shortlisted and it is among the awards finalists.
This is the judges' comment: "How do we love Italian food? This clever book by an Italian-born Oxford professor attempts to count the ways. ‘It’s big on history and social history, deftly moving between topics as diverse as food in Roman Britain, Dickens in Italy and Elizabeth David on courgettes.’ Judges praised it for being ‘exhaustively researched but approachable’, and loved the way this book ‘most definitely went further into the why and how we became obsessed with Italian food.’"
The winner will be announced on Tuesday 16 June at 6pm. For obvious reasons we have had to cancel our Awards party this year and will announce the awards on Instagram where we very much hope you will join us at@thegfw. The event will be introduced by our president Orlando Murrin and chair Genevieve Taylor.
