Awards & Trade Fairs

  • The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards were founded in 1995 by Edouard Cointreau. Every year, they honour the best food and wine books, printed or digital, as well as food television. 
  • Books from 205 countries participate in these prestigious awards, the only international competition of the sector. It is free, and open to all languages. 
  • Every year, Gourmand gives the awards in a very special location for gastronomy. The Ceremony is always an opportunity to meet every important person in the world of food and books: hundreds of publishers, authors, chefs and journalists take part in these events. 
  • The Gourmand Awards have been compared to the “Oscars” for lm. They are inspired by the Olympic Games and their spirit. 
  • With the huge network created around the Gourmand Awards, Edouard Cointreau decided to launch the Paris Cookbook Fair in 2010. After three years at Le Centquatre, the fair moved to the Carrousel du Louvre in 2013, and Beijing in 2014. Since then, the World Cookbook Fair takes place at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

See you in May at the Gourmand Awards Ceremony in Yantai, China,

or in October at the Gourmet Gallery of the Frankfurt Book Fair!

About the Frankfurt Book Fair
The Frankfurt Book Fair is the international publishing industry’s biggest trade fair – with 7,100 exhibitors from more than 100 countries, around 270,000 visitors, over 4,000 events and around 9,000 accredited journalists in attendance. It also gathers key players from other media, including the film and games industries. Since 1976, the Book Fair has featured an annual Guest of Honour country, which showcases  its book market, literature and culture to attendees in a variety of ways. The Frankfurt Book Fair organises the participation of German publishers at around 20 international book fairs and hosts trade events throughout the year in major international markets. With its Business Club, the Frankfurt Book Fair offers essential services and an ideal setting for the activities of publishers, entrepreneurs, pioneers, experts and visionaries. The CONTEC and STORYDRIVE conferences have both become established meeting places for the industry. The Frankfurt Book Fair is a subsidiary of the German Publishers & Booksellers Association.

To be succesful, a party has to be a mix of people from different backgrounds, environments and cultures. This is the driving concept of Paris Cookbook Fair, with a mix of publishers, authors, photographers, writers, chefs, stylists, printers, professors and students from over 50 countries, with many coming from outside Europe.

Paris Cookbook Fair is a feast, with chefs demonstrations at the international and French show kitchens, conferences, Malaysian tribal food, luxury cookbook binding, the wine pentathlon, the International Bar, the beer tastings, and much more.

It is also a business platform where professionals can meet at their stands or at the international rights center to conduct trade in an easy, pleasant environment with no stress. The objective is to make the Paris Cookbook Fair the hub of the cookbook business worldwide. Children books have the Bologna Book Fair, comics have Angoulême, cookbooks and wine books have now Paris.

Everyone comes for the same purpose. However the diversity of the offer and demand is such now that there is something different for everyone, in price, in content and in style.
I hope that trade will meet pleasure.
