Andre Simon Awards 2014 Shortlist

Andre Simon Memorial Fund Awards

Andre Simon Memorial Fund Awards

Andre Simon, perhaps one of the greatest bon-vivant’s of the English wine trade, was the founder of the International Wine & Food Society and a prolific food & wine writer. In 1965 Simon established the André Simon Awards for gastronomic literature, with a prize of 100 guineas.

The Awards have been awarded ever since and today are considered one of the most prestigious awards for serious food and wine writing in the British Commonwealth.

The Andre Simon Awards are overseen by the Trustees of the André Simon Memorial Fund. The Trustees also invite a wine expert and a food expert to judge the awards. A shortlist of usually 6 food books and 6 wine books is published in November. The final Awards for Food Book of the Year and Wine Book of the Year are made in March the following year. Special Commendations are also awarded for books considered outstanding by the Trustees.
