DRINK CULTURE 2020

Nominees qualified for Best in the World competition 2021

The Winter Harvest list is published on November 23, 2020. It is the final list of the year, including all other Harvest lists of 2020. The list includes all the Winners by countries in each category. There is only one Winner by country in each category, except when books are in different languages. Includes the Spring Harvest list, published April 23, the Summer Harvest list published July 23, the Autumn list published September 23.

It is the final list with all the participants in the Best in the World competition of 2021. There are now 1288 entries, from 175 countries and regions. All will participate in the next Gourmand Awards, with the Best in the World announced in Paris June 3-6, 2021. All those on the Winter Harvest list already have the right to the Winners certificates and stickers.

We have approximately 20% more entries this year than last year. The cookbook activity has been intense in 2020, a consequence of the pandemic and confinement. There is much digital publishing, but print is also increasing. We created the new category A01 for Covid-19 cookbooks.

Take extreme care and keep safe, protect the others, and yourself.

Best wishes
