When I used to do live cooking demonstrations, I could tell that my home cook friendly recipes and approach really resonated with people. They'd come up and ask me to write a book and now that I have, it's being as well received by readers as it is by the industry. I'm thrilled!
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) December 16, 2007
Author, entrepreneur, and The Renaissance Gourmet Angela Tunner's "Simply Summer- Gourmet Meals Made Deliciously Easy with Tips for Elegant Living" cookbook has recently won the prestigious Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in the Best Easy Recipes cookbook category for Canada. "With over 26,000 cookbooks being published around the world every year, it's an honour and a joy to have been selected amongst so many entries," say Tunner.
The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards was founded by Edward Cointreau in 1995 (originally titled The World Cookbook Awards). The awards are designed to honour those who "cook with words" and due to "Simply Summer's" impressive win, Tunner has a chance to compete in the Best in the World cookbook category in Kuala Lampur in May, 2008.
Part of the cookbook's massive appeal is that Tunner, a former restaurant chef and busy mom, understands just how time-strapped many of us are, which is why she offers a host of elegant menus and recipes that are low on fuss while high in flavour. French-inflected, gourmet recipes that deliver are the book's mainstay, as is Tunner's "no-cook" cooking approach. This refers to Angela's use of smaller, more energy-efficient appliances to prepare quick, delicious meals WITHOUT having to turn on the oven or stove. Angela makes versatile good use of toaster ovens, microwaves, blenders and other small kitchen appliances that use up to 75% less energy than a large electric oven in preparing simple recipes that use easily available ingredients found in neighbourhood grocery stores.

They'd come up and ask me to write a book and now that I have, it's being as well received by readers as it is by the industry. I'm thrilled!" say Tunner adding, "Not to be overlooked is the speed in which this quality and now award- winning book was produced. From start to printing, the book was completed in two months. My editor tells me this incredible feat should be in the annals of publishing history."
