The prestigious Andre Simon Memorial Fund award for the best food book of 1998 was last night given to Ken Hom for his book "Easy Family Dishes: A memoir with recipes " published by BBC Worldwide last October. His editor Viv Bowler (Lifestyle Group, UK Region) accepted the award on his behalf.
This is the most prestigious cookery book award of the year - for which Ken has previously been short listed twice. Easy Family Dishes doubles as an autobiography and a cook book and tells the story of Ken's upbringing as a Chinese American in Chicago. Eighty-five cookery books were entered in all and the short-list included top names such as Nigel Slater, Madhur Jaffrey and Nigella Lawson. Josceline Dimbleby, who presented the award, described the book as beautifully written, endearing, informative and unique. Ken's book enters into the André Simon hall of fame.
Seamus Geoghegan, Director, Lifestyle Group, said: "This award is a testament not only to Ken's enormous writing and cooking talents, but also to the editorial expertise of Viv Bowler who worked so hard to get this title - a non TV tie-in which several other publishers were interested in. BBC Worldwide is often regarded exclusively as a TV tie-in publisher, but this proves that we can be just as successful with books that aren't linked to specific series. We have worked with Ken for over 15 years now and are delighted and proud to be the publishers of the first of his titles ever to win an André Simon award."
