Happy Christmas to me! Happy Christmas to me! Happy Christmas to me!

Happy Christmas to Sarka too, the cookbook’s photographer!

Just yesterday, I received the news that The Jewelled Kitchen won the International Gourmand Cookbook Award for Best Blog to Book in the UK. The Jewelled Kitchen will now go on to compete against winners in the same category in other countries for The Best in the World, with the results announced at the annual Gourmand World Cookbook Awards event taking place in Beijing next year (May 19-21).

The Gourmand Cookbook Awards are the “Oscars” of the food world and attended by the culinary world’s glitterati. I am elated that JK has been recognized and wish there had been a candid camera present when I read the news- it was a hysterical sight to see; full of shouting, jumping (in the front seat of the car on the M5), crying, laughing, all at once! Pure comedy (though I frightened the husband at first).

Best Christmas presssie thus far! Now fingers crossed for more amazing news in May perhaps!


Thank you Gourmand and thank you to my readers and supporters. Lots of love and here’s wishing you a very Merry Christmas. xx
