André Simon Awards 2021 Shortlist

The Chair and Trustees of the prestigious annual André Simon Food & Drink Book Awards have announced the shortlist for 2021. From food activism to recipes inspired by the Eastern Mediterranean; from South American wine to the vineyards and people of Burgundy: these shortlisted books celebrate the very best of contemporary food and drink writing.

The panel was guided by this year’s independent assessors: Yemisi Aribisala, a Nigerian born writer and artist for the food books and Rose Murray Brown MW for the drink books.. 

Four Guild members featured on the food long list.

  • A Curious Absence Of Chickens by Sophie Grigson (Headline Publishing Group)
  • Eating To Extinction by Dan Saladino (Jonathan Cape)
  • Freekeh - Wild Wheat & Ancient Grains by Ruth Nieman (Prospect Books)
  • Herb by Mark Diacono (Quadrille)

In the last few days we are pleased to share with you that Dan, Ruth and Mark's books have all made it on to the short list.

The award ceremony will be held virtually on Tuesday 8 March 2022
