Last February, we were happy to announce that two books that we printed were in the finals of the ‘Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.’ We are now delighted to reveal that The Modern Irish Cookbook, by Goodalls of Ireland, has won in its category and is now the best blogger’s cookbook in the world for 2014. The Modern Irish Cookbook contains recipes and biographies from all around the world. All proceeds from the book went to the Penny Dinners and Blue Cross Charities.

The awards were founded in 1995 and it is a free competition open to publishers in all languages and countries. The awards celebrate cookbooks and wine books throughout the world in many different categories. What selfpublishbooks likes is that the awards contain many books that have been self-published as it is an industry that continues to grow. The 2014 awards took place in Beijing in China.

Selfpublishbooks is involved in several other cookbook projects and we hope that we will have another winner in 2015. Our layflat binding facility continues to be both eye catching and useful for anyone wanting to write their own cookbook.
