The Okanagan Table – Taste Canada Awards

We were so excited to get the news that ‘The Okanagan Table – The Art of Everyday Home Cooking’ by our own Chef Rod Butters has now been shortlisted for a coveted writing award from Taste Canada.

A champion of cookbook authors and food bloggers, Taste Canada inspires and encourages readers at home and abroad to discover delicious recipes and diverse food stories written from a Canadian perspective.

Each year, Taste Canada presents awards to some of the best food and beverage writers in both official languages. The jury is comprised of volunteers from Canada’s culinary profession appointed by an independent selection committee. This year, 91 cookbooks and 50 food blogs entered the competition. The shortlist narrows the competition to a maximum of 5 entries per category.

The 26 gold and silver award winners will be revealed at the Taste Canada Awards Gala on October 29 at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto.

The Gala, a one-of-a-kind gastronomic celebration, brings together writers, publishers, chefs, farmers, industry, media and cookbook fans and promotes a vibrant national conversation about food and the art and culture of culinary writing.
