‘The End of Char Kway Teow’ Wins World Cookbooks Award December 28 2011

It all began when one of our then-pregnant editors couldn’t stop drooling at her computer. What was she looking at? Dr. Leslie Tay’s amazing food blog of course! And that was the genesis of us working with the friendly Dr. Tay to put together The End of Char Kway Teow and other Hawker Mysteries.

And now, Dr. Tay’s book is racking up the awards and there’s no stopping it! Just a few weeks after this guide to hawker food in Singapore bagged the third prize in the Popular Readers’ Choice Awards 2011, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that Gourmand International (of the Paris Cookbook Fair fame) has awarded The End of Char Kway Teow and other Hawker Mysteries the award for “Best Food Literature” in Singapore. The book has also been selected by Gourmand International to represent Singapore in the international Gourmand World Cookbook Award competition! Congratulations once again to Dr. Tay!

We’re honoured to be your publisher.
