Over here at Gourmet Male HQ we have a bit of a cookbook obsession. So much so, actually, that I just needed to buy another bookshelf to house them. Whether it be from Alinea, Noma, Rockpool, Mugaritz, Joe Beef, Eleven Madison Park, or El Bulli, I have them all. Ben Shewry, Jamie Oliver, Matt Moran, Yotam Ottolenghi, Stephane Reynaud, Heston Blumenthal, or Nobu - I have them too.
So we've decided that the time is right for the First Annual Gourmet Male Cookbook Awards! We want to know which books do you love? Which books do you go back to again and again for tasty recipes? Which ones are visually stunning but so complicated it's impossible to cook from? We want your nominations in the following categories:
Best For A BBQ
Best To Impress A Date
Best For Watching The Footy With Mates
Best For A Dinner Party
Best That You'll Never Successfully Cook From
Best For The Coffee TableLeave a comment for your nomination or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations close at the end of August and voting will run through September. The winners will be notified in early October! We're looking forward to hearing about the cookbooks you love!
