2020 Taste Canada Cookbook Awards

A champion of Canadian cookbook authors, Taste Canada is a national not-for-profit that aims to inspire readers to discover delicious recipes and diverse food stories written from a Canadian perspective. Over the past two decades, Taste Canada Awards has honored hundreds of Canadian-authored books and blogs on an array of topics related to food. The awards cover both of Canada’s official languages. The winners of the 2020 Taste Canada Cookbook Awards were announced at a virtual gala held on October 25.

There are slightly fewer categories for the Taste Canada awards versus the JBF or IACP awards: Culinary Narratives, General Cookbooks, Regional/Cultural Cookbooks, Single Subject Cookbooks, and Health/Special Diet Cookbooks. Each category features two winners for each language, gold medal and silver medal. The English-language winners in each category are:

Culinary Narratives

General Cookbooks


Single Subject

Health/Special Diet

Congratulations to all of the winners!

    I’m excited to check out Chop Suey nation. I remember road trips across Canada, before the days of fast food, and the fantastic Chinese restaurants we would find.

    Sadly, Coconut Lagoon fell victim to a fire earlier this week. Buying the cookbook is a small way to repay a chef and restaurateur who has invested his sweat and soul in feeding those less fortunate in Ottawa. He’s participated in a non-profit collaborative who distributes food throughout the city. Food that warms the body and soul. Glad Chef Thottungal was honoured.

Seen anything interesting? Let us know & we'll share it!
