And The Winner Is…..

Oh my goodness — Street Food Revolution has been shortlisted for Food Book Of The Year. The annual Guild of Food Writers Awards, which are the most prestigious in the field of food writing and broadcasting, are always hotly contested. Will Hugh beat Yotam? Will Peyton upend Luard? The results will be announced on May 30 in London. I will polish my shoes every day until then.
