Sharon Hanna Shortlisted for a Taste Canada Food Writing Award


Posted: Friday, August 2, 2013 at 10:31am

Sharon HannaTaste Canada―The Food Writing Awards have announced the shortlist for 2013. The Book of Kale: The Easy-to-Grow Superfood, by Harbour Publishing author Sharon Hanna, has been nominated in the single-subject cookbooks category. The jury said the writing “has real personality and charm” and that the book "has integrity, heart and pure deliciousness.”

 Taste Canada―The Food Writing Awards is an evolution of the former Canadian Culinary Book Awards. These newly branded Awards annually recognize and celebrate superior writing and publishing throughout Canada’s culinary world, both English and French. This year, there were 64 submissions, representing a brilliant snapshot of the vibrancy and diversity of Canadian culinary publishing. The winners will be announced, together with the names of the jurors, at the Award Ceremony and Gala Reception on Monday, 4th November, at the Arcadian Court in Toronto.

The Book of Kale is a delightful book that celebrates one of the most nutritious foods in existence—a leafy green that also happens to be virtually foolproof to grow. Packed to the brim with superb recipes and Sharon Hanna's signature wit, The Book of Kale will win over even the most stubborn of kale critics.

Other nominees in the single-subject cookbooks category are The Complete Preserving Book by Tina Anson Mine, The Vegetarian's Complete Quinoa Cookbook by Mairlyn Smith, Les desserts de Patrice by Patrice Demers, La mijoteuse : de la lasagne à la crème brulée by Ricardo Larrivée, and Cabane à sucre Au pied de Cochon: Le sirop d'erable by Martin Picard.
