Cook with Josh, the first of its kind world-wide, wins the prestigious Gourmand World Cookbook Award in Paris for the best Children and Family Cookbook of 2012

10 YEARS OLD
JOSH, intent on becoming a TV chef, is planning his next interactive cookbook.
This time, readers young and old will be treated to more of the JOSH magic – in a truly interactive book, Bake with JOSH.
The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards – Big Time for a little boy
To be recognised as ‘Best in the World’ for your cookbook is a special honour. To be only 9 years old when that honour is bestowed on you takes some doing! You are simply the best, and globally recognised as such. The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards were founded in 1995 by Edouard Cointreau. The Ceremony is always an opportunity to meet important people in the world of cookbooks: hundreds of publishers, authors, chefs and journalists take part in these events. JOSH was fortunate enough to attend the event in Paris to receive his award.
“It is exciting to see someone as young as Josh so passionate about cooking and hope that his creativity and entrepreneurial spirit as demonstrated through his cookbook development will inspire other kids to get into the kitchen and have fun cooking.”
Whitney Miller, MasterChef USA season 1 winner
JOSH is currently busy with his 2nd cook book, “Bake with Josh”, which will be published in April 2014
