More Blue Ribbon success

The Blue Ribbon Cookbook has been nominated for the 2010 Le Cordon Bleu World Food Media Awards, due to be announced in Adelaide on May 3 as part of Tasting Australia. It is the second international accolade for the book which was named runner-up out of 56 finalists from around the world in the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in Paris last year.
Known as the Ladles, the World Food Media Awards are held every two years, with categories for a wide variety of food and drink broadcasting and publishing, from books and magazines to journalism, photography, TV and the internet.
Liz Harfull's book about country show cooks and their prize-winning recipes is nominated in the category for Best Hard Cover Recipe Book (under 35 Euros).
Two other books published by Wakefield Press have been shortlisted in the Best Food Book category - Lolo Houbein's 'One Magic Square', and 'Everything but the squeal' by John Barlow.
