Josh Thirion (13) Wins “The Best of the Best” Award with Gourmand at the Frankfurt Book Fair

Bake with JoshBak met JoshOn 15 October, the Gourmand Awards celebrated 20 years of awards at a ceremony at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

As part of the celebration, they honoured the “Best of the Best” from the last 20 years of awards. We are thrilled to announce that Josh Thirion won the award for “Best of the Best Children Food Book” for Cook with Josh (Afrikaans: Bak met Josh).

Thirion is a talented boy with a passion for food and cooking. Besides cooking and baking, Thirion loves to draw, especially comic strips. His other favourite activities include sport, drama, reading and singing. Bake with Josh is his second book.

Read about what the award meant for the world’s youngest published author and chef on the Josh in the Kitchen blog:

Josh had previously stated that just by virtue of merely being a nominee for the award was enough honour for him. But he exceeded even his own expectations by bringing home the award.
